1. I need much help when I’m in trouble
For life is just a bubble
And I look for help that’s outside me
As I’m tossed by the waves of the sea.

Refrain

Do I look to the hills as the heathens do
Expecting help from there?
No I lift up mine eyes beyond the blue
To the city of gold that’s fair!

2. The God of Israel never slumbers or sleeps
My life in His hand He keeps
As I walk on this earth as a stranger
He preserves my soul from danger

3. The sun and the moon, shall not smite me
I’m always secured from my enemy
He watches over me by day and night
And my battles the Lord does fight

4. The Lord is my strength and my shield
And His sword I will wield
I’ve nothing to fear for the Lord is near
And He is my Friend so dear!
