The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
Chorus:
Guiding me, guarding me, the Lord is by my side.
Guiding me, guarding me, the Lord upholds my life.

1. I lift up my eyes to the mountains ...

2. May he never allow you to stumble ...

3. The Lord is your guard and your shade ...

4. The Lord will guard you from evil...

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Guiding me, guarding me, the Lord is by my side.
Guiding me, guarding me, the Lord upholds my life.

1. I lift up my eyes to the mountains
From where shall come my help?
My help shall come from the Lord my God,
Who made heaven and earth.

2. May he never allow you to stumble
Let him sleep not, your guard.
No he sleeps not nor stumbles,
He is Israel’s guard.

3. The Lord is your guard and your shade,
at your right side he stands.
By day the sun shall not smite you
Nor the moon in the night.

4. The Lord will guard you from evil,
He will guard your soul.
The Lord will guard your going and coming
Both now and forever.
