Mendelssohn, Felix: Lift thine eyes


Lift thine eyes (from Elijah, 1847)

Lift thine eyes to the mountains, whence cometh help.
Thy help cometh from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He hath said, thy foot shall not be moved, thy Keeper will never slumber.

Words: Psalm 121 vv. 1–3
Music: Felix Mendelssohn (1809–47)
