Unto the hills around do I lift up (Campbell/Purday)

1) Unto the hills around
Do I lift up my longing eyes
O whence for me shall my
Salvation come, from whence arise?
From God, the Lord,
Doth come my certain aid,
From God, the Lord,
Who heaven and earth hath made.

2) He will not suffer that
Thy foot be moved: safe shalt thou be.
No careless slumber shall
His eyelids close, who keepeth thee.
Behold, He sleepeth not,
He slumbereth ne’er,
Who keepeth Israel in His holy care.

3) Jehovah is Himself
Thy keeper true, thy changeless shade;
Jehovah thy defense
On thy right hand Himself hath made.
And thee no sun by day
Shall ever smite;
No moon shall harm thee in the silent night.

4) From every evil shall
He keep thy soul, from every sin;
Jehovah shall preserve
Thy going out, thy coming in.
Above thee watching,
He whom we adore
Shall keep thee henceforth,
Yea, forevermore.
