My Keeper

words and music by Greg Scheer

CCLI#2929260

Imagine Jars of Clay singing Psalm 121 and you have a good idea of what "My Keeper" sounds like. The mesmerizing vocal line which echoes back and forth between the men and the women floats on top of a driving guitar rhythm. Perfect for college praise teams.

1. I lift my eyes up to the hills--
they scan the sky for signs of help.
I know the Lord of heaven and earth--
I know He'll be my helper still.

He will be my keeper; my keeper.
He will be my keeper; my keeper.

2. And as I set out on my way
He watches over every step.
He doesn't slumber, doesn't let
my feet fall or be lead astray.

He is my keeper; my keeper.
He is my keeper; my keeper.

3. The sun burns brightly in the sky;
I know the Lord will be the shade
that watches over me by day,
who comforts me throughout the night.

He is my keeper; my keeper.
He is my keeper; my keeper.

4. The Lord protects me all my days;
my life is in His guiding hands.
My going out and coming in
are in His care, both for today

and forever; forever.
In His care forever; forever.
