“I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade on
your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep your going out
and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.”

If you but trust in God to guide you
And place your confidence in Him,
You’ll find him always there beside you
To give you hope and strength within.
For those who trust God’s changeless love
Build on the rock that will not move.
~Georg Neumark, 1621-81
