View Lyrics
I look towards the hills;
can they bring help to birth?
My help comes from the Lord Himself,
who made the heav'n and earth.

He will not let you slide,
your keeper will not sleep,
for Israel’s Lord will never tire,
who has us in His keep.

The Lord will keep you safe,
the Lord will be your shade.
Of sun or moon or deadly curse
you need not be afraid.

The Lord will keep your soul,
from evil at your door.
The Lord will keep you day by day,
both now and evermore.
