1214

I lift my eyes to the quiet hills

I lift my eyes to the quiet hills
in the press of a busy day;
as green hills stand
in a dusty land
so God is my strength and stay.

2. I lift my eyes to the quiet hills
to a calm that is mine to share;
secure and still
in the Father’s will
and kept by the Father’s care.

3. I lift my eyes to the quiet hills
with a prayer as I turn to sleep;
by day, by night,
through the dark and light
my Shepherd will guard his sheep.

4. I lift my eyes to the quiet hills
and my heart to the Father’s throne;
in all my ways
to the end of days
the Lord will preserve his own.

BASED ON PSALM 121
