I lift mine eyes unto the hills,
And to the boundless sky,
Thro’ all life’s sad and varied ills,
Our help is from on high.
The heavenly King, who e’er shall be,
In might eternal reigns;
When sorrow’s darts encompass me,
He every hope sustains.
The burning rays of noon-tide sun,
Shall smite me not by day;
And while the evil path I shun.
God will protect my way.
On every side He is my shade,
And still preserves my soul;
His greatness ever is displayed
Thro’ years that onward roll.
From this time, and for evermore,
His mercy mildly beams;
Lord! lead me to that heavenly shore.
Where peace eternal gleams.
