O Lord, all my longing is before you;

    and the light of my eyes—it also has gone from me.

Unto the hills mine eyes I lift (Psalm 121:1-8) – William Byrd

 

Psalm 121

Psalm 121 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Psalm 121:1-8 [anonymous metrical text version used for Byrd’s music]

1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

 Unto the hills mine eyes I lift (from Songs of Sundrie Natures, 1589) by William Byrd (1540-1623)
