Up to the hills I lift my eyes.
Is it from there my help will rise?
God made the hills, the earth, the skies,
and he will help.

He'll not allow your foot to slip,
Faithful the watch your God will keep,
he'll never slumber, never sleep,
but he will help.

God watches over all your way,
close by your side he'll always stay,
shading from harm both night and day.
The Lord will help.

Evil shall never vanquish you;
God watches everything you do,
he'll keep you safe your whole life through,
he'll always help.

Out on a hill where sinners died
God's holy Son was crucified;
now he is at his Father's side,
our living help.

I lift my eyes to Calvary,
there the Lord Jesus bled for me;
no greater love could ever be,
no surer help.
