1 Up to the hills I lift mine eyes,
Th'eternal hills beyond the skies;
Thence all her help my soul derives,
There my almighty Refuge lives.

2 He lives--the everlasting God
That built the world, that spread the flood.
The heavens with all their hosts He made,
And the dark regions of the dead.

3 He guides our feet, He guards our way;
His morning smiles bless all the day:
Our holy Guardian's wakeful eyes
Admit no slumber, nor surprise.

4 Should earth and hell with malice burn,
Still thou shalt go, and still return,
Safe in the Lord; His heavenly care
Defends Thy life from every snare.

Amen.
