I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord.
As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever.
Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, until He has mercy on us. § Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. § My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He shall pluck my feet out of the net. § Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
