I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes

We had a concert this weekend in the Provo Tabernacle and we performed a song whose lyrics come from the 121st Psalm. The song was very moving and I love the words. They speak of the Love of God, of hope, of protection, and of the Lord’s guiding influence in our lives.

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot toe be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.”

What a powerful message. One that I hope to be able to remember throughout my life.
