Both Now and Forever More

By Gilberto Barreto

CCLI Number: 2444642

Another early song by Gilberto based on Psalm 121. We sang this many time in church and in prison concerts. - Elton

Gilberto Barreto


I lift up my eyes to the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth,
the maker of heaven and earth.
The Lord watches over Israel.
The Lord watches over you.
He is your shade at your right hand.
He is your shade at your right hand.
He is your shade at your right hand.
He is your shade at your right hand.

The sun will not harm you
by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm.
He will watch over your life;
The Lord will watch over your coming.
The Lord will watch over your going.
Both now and forevermore,
Both now and forevermore,
Both now and forevermore,
Both now and forevermore,
and forevermore.

What a refreshing melody! But I would love to hear the words together with the music. Is it (words and melody)recorded in an album?

This is a really neat song. I remember years ago, you had this as an audio file. I would like to hear that so that I to could lead it in congregational worship. The pace of the midi file is a little to fast to replicate by ear.
