Scottish Psalter


I TO the hills will lift mine eyes,

From whence doth come mine aid;

My safety cometh from the Lord,

Who heaven and earth hath made.


The foot He’ll not let slide, nor will

He slumber that thee keeps:

Behold, He that keeps Israel,

He slumbers not, nor sleeps.


The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade

On thy right hand doth stay:

The moon by night thee shall not smite,

Nor yet the sun by day.


The Lord shall keep thy soul; He shall

Preserve thee from all ill:

Henceforth thy going out and in

God keep forever will.
