Hymn/Song Information

Up to the hills I lift mine eyes The eternal hills




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


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.


He guides our feet, he guards our way,
His morning smiles bless all the day;
He spreads the evening veil, and keeps
The silent hours while Israel sleeps.


Israel, a name divinely blest,
May rise secure, securely rest;
Thy holy guardian’s wakeful eyes
Admit no slumber nor surprise.


No sun shall smite thy head by day,
Nor the pale moon with sickly ray
Shall blast thy couch; no baleful star
Dart his malignant fire so far.


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.


On thee foul spirits have no power;
And, in thy last departing hour,
Angels, that trace the airy toad,
Shall bear thee homeward to thy God.
