Based in Psalm 121, the text of this beautiful work captures the beauty and serenity of nature, and the promise of guidance and support from a higher power. The composer has carefully shaped the melodic lines to mimic that of a mountainous landscape and the tone colors to the bold hues of where the hills meet the sky. Duration: 5:00.

Customer Reviews

"This work practically pulls the phrasing/dynamics from the singer. It's an utter delight to perform and to hear. "

"I had the opportunity to sing I Will Lift Mine Eyes with composer Jake Runestad in April 2011. In addition to being breathtakingly beautiful, it is not overly-challenging to learn. I would highly recommend this piece for any ensemble. "

"This is one of those pieces that gives you chills every time, whether you perform it or listen to it. The lines are intuitive to sing yet result in a sound that is something special. "
