Lift Thine Eyes

 

Bridal Procession on Hardanger Fiord - Hans Gude (with a little assistance from Adolph Tidemand).

 

A paraphrase of Psalm 121...   (Sung version from Felix Mendelssohn's Elijah by members of Westminster Choir College)

 

Lift thine eyes, O lift thine eyes,
behold the mountain's crown,
heed not a frailty of craft,
rough rocks and storms that drown

Above the tumult of blind strife,
there lies a clearer sphere,
where angels weave a tapestry
from sunlit shadows here

That's from whence our help shall come,
a guide through life's defiles
to heaven's Revelation,
the Hope of misty miles

 

 

Into the Light - Hans Gude (with a little assistance from Adolph Tidemand).

 

Verses bases on Psalm 121

 

Art: Hans Gude, Norwegian Romantic landscape painter, March 13, 1825 - August 17, 1903
