I Will Lift Up My Eyes


I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES

I will lift up my eyes unto the hills
To the God of Heaven and seek His will

The Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
Has been my help before my birth

He never slumbers, nor does He sleep
I forever will be in His watchful keep

He is the shade on my right hand
Under His protection, I'll forever stand

I'm preserved from evil, He preserves my soul
I'll trust Him until His face I behold

My going out, and my coming in
Are preserved forever only by Him

One day I'll stand on Heaven's shore
To reign with Him forevermore

    I knew this was from Psalms as soon as I read it. Good job at these rhyming couplets and congratulations on winning in the contest with it.

    Psalms are among my favorite passages of Scripture. They make good reading and give great advice.

    Thanks J.! David wrote many Psalms that are great poems. He'd make a favorite poet on Soup!
