Craig Phillips adds to his many expressive psalm settings with this work based on the familiar words of Psalm 121: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills; from when cometh my help?” The text is suitable for almost any occasion, and the engaging vocal lines throughout are sure to make it both a congregation and choir favorite. Written for the Taylor Choir of Grace and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Colorado Springs and Deke Polifka, Organist & Choirmaster, in loving memory of Robert McJimsey, commissioned by his wife, Marianna.

Anthem text
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help?
My help cometh even from the Lord,
who hath made heav’n and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved;
and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
The Lord himself is thy keeper,
the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand;
so that the sun shall not burn thee by day,
neither the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil;
yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out,
and thy coming in, from this time forth for evermore.

--Psalm 121
