I to the hills will lift mine eyes, From whence doth come mine aid. My safety cometh from the Lord, Who heav’n and earth hath made.2. Thy foot He’ll not let slide, nor will He slumber that thee keeps, Behold, He that keeps Israel, He slumbers not nor sleeps.3. The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade On thy right hand doth stay: The moon by night thee shall not smite, Nor yet the sun by day.4. The Lord shall keep thy soul; He shall Preserve thee from all ill. Henceforth thy going out and in God keep forever will.
