Hymn/Song Information

Upward I lift mine eyes From God is all my aid




Upward I lift mine eyes;
From God is all my aid;
The God that built the skies,
And earth and nature made:
God is the tower
To which I fly;
His grace is nigh
In every hour.


My feet shall never slide,
And fall in fatal snares,
Since God, my guard and guide,
Defends me from my fears.
Those wakeful eyes,
Which never sleep,
Shall Israel keep,
When dangers rise.


No burning heat of day,
Nor blast of evening air,
Shall take my health away,
If God be with me there.
Thou art my sun,
And thou my shade,
To guard my head
By night or noon.


Hast thou not given thy word,
To save my soul from death;
And I can trust my Lord
To keep my mortal breath.
Iíll go and come,
Nor fear to die,
Till from on high
Thou call me home.


---Alternative verses---


My feet shall never slide,
And fall in fatal snares,
Since God, my guard and guide,
Defends me from my fears.
Those wakeful eyes,
that never sleep,
Shall Israel keep,
When dangers rise.
