Original text and translations
I raise my eyes to the mountains
and seek a blessing there;
Oh Lord, who from the hilltop reigns
look down and hear my prayer.
Who made the earth, the skies, the deep,
Who slumbers not and will not sleep
but guards Israel with sword and shield,
to evil let me never yield.
You, Lord, are constant as my shadow;
You keep my foot firm on the heath
And steer me from the chasms beneath.
Your saving grace on me bestow.
From coldest moon and blazing sun,
By day, by night protect me.
Steadfast in Your ways direct me
That with You I may be as one.
I raise my eyes…
