I lift my eyes to the hills

Bible Passages: Psalm 121; Isa 26:4

This song is based almost entirely on psalm 121, which is a wonderful reminder of the care God exercises over us, both day and night. In fact the phrase “watches over” is used no less than five times in these eight verses, just to emphasize that we are under his umbrella of refuge. I love that this psalm tells us that God our Father never sleeps or slumbers – he’s always alert to provide us with the help and assurance we need – his “powerful sufficiency” will sustain us, if we will but lift our eyes to see him.

I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from?
I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from?
My help comes from You, sovereign God of all,
maker of heaven and the earth.

And when I lift my eyes I’ll see your powerful sufficiency,
God who watches over me won’t slumber.
And You will be my shade by day,
you’ll keep the fears of night at bay,
steadied by your hand , my feet won’t stumble

I lift my hands to your throne, for you are God, my rock.
I lift my hands to your throne, for you are God, my rock.
Your strength is my song, all-sufficient One
Yahweh, the everlasting God

Lord you guard my soul, all my ways you know, yet you never let go
I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from?
