Psalter 347

Verse 1
Unto the hills around do I lift up
My longing eyes;
O whence shall my salvation come,
From whence arise?
From God the Lord doth come my certain aid,
From God the Lord Who heav'n and earth hath made.

Verse 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 slumb'reth ne'er,
Who keepeth Israel in His holy care.

Verse 3
Jehovah is Himself thy keeper true;
Thy changeless shade
Jehovah, evermore 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.

Verse 4
From ev'ry evil shall He keep thy soul,
From ev'ry sin;
Jehovah shall preserve thy going out,
Thy coming in;
Above thee watching, He Whom we adore
Shall keep thee hence-forth, yea, for evermore.
