Psalm 121:3 As The 148th Psalm [Upward I Lift Mine Eyes] by Isaac Watts

God our preserver.

Upward I lift mine eyes,
From God is all my aid;
The God that built the skies,
And earth and nature made:
God is the tow’r
To which I fly:
His grace is nigh
In every hour.

My feet shall never slide
And fall in fatal snares,
Since God, my guard and guide,
Defends me from my fears:
Those wakeful eyes
That never sleep
Shall Israel keep
When dangers rise.

No burning heats by day,
Nor blasts of evening air,
Shall take my health away,
If God be with me there.
Thou art my sun,
And thou my shade,
To guard my head
By night or noon.

Hast thou not given thy word
To save my soul from death?
And I can trust my Lord
To keep my mortal breath;
I’ll go and come,
Nor fear to die,
Till from on high
Thou call me home.
