He Will Not Let You Fall

I had the weirdest experience last night.

I was driving through some rather remote roads late at night to pick up my youngest son from a youth event at a Christian camp.   All the time I was thinking of a really old Psalms Alive song, “He Will Not Let You Fall.”

So I went on YouTube just for fun to see if someone had posted the audio, and there it was.   I started listening only to notice I was only the second person to ever view it.   Hmmm.  That’s odd.

I glanced down at the post date:  April 30, 2010.

Timing is everything.   Kinda fits the song, doesn’t it?   Click the comments section below to listen.

I look up to the mountains

To the hills I turn my eyes

Who will come to help me?

Can I find a place to hide?

The one who made the heavens

And the earth will hear my call

The Lord will come to help me

And He will not let me fall

  2. I love stories of the way in which the Spirit times things…no matter how many times it happens, it never fails to “surprise me”

  6. Where can I find the words to this song to print for free?

    • If you’re using the lyrics in your church, you may not be able to print them “for free” as you suggest. Most modern worship songs are protected by copyright, and mass-reproduction is stealing. If it’s just to have a copy to sit on the piano or next to the guitar, here are the lyrics:

      I look up to the mountains
      To the hills I turn my eyes
      Who will come to help me
      Can I find a place to hide
      The One who made the heavens
      And the earth will hear my call
      The Lord will come to help me
      And He will not let me fall

      He will not let you fall
      He will not let you fall
      He is never weary and
      He will not let you fall
      He will not let you fall
      He will not let you fall
      He is never weary and
      He will not let you fall

      The One who watches Israel
      Will His vigil keep
      Through the burning sunlight
      And in the darkness deep
      Constantly beside you
      You need not fear at all
      The Lord is there to help you
      And He will not let you fall

      So when you are in danger
      When by trouble you are found
      And your very soul is threatened
      By the evil all around
      In all of your ways and
      In your troubles great and small
      Now and ever after
      He will not let you fall

  7. Thank you so much for giving us the lyrics of this song. I looked for this song much earlier in the year without any results. I just decided to check it out again today. What can I say? God is so so on time. God Bless you.

  9. This is sounding like a repetition but i last sang this in the choir say over 20 years ago. Started singing it now and had to check the web to see what i could find. And here i am…. He’s the one who has kept me from falling

  16. The Holy Spirit ministered to me just now at the end of my work day by bringing this song quietly into my heart. I have not sang the song in a very long while. When I got it on YouTube, the lyrics were not there but I followed a web link which brought me this webpage. Thank you very much for starting this off. Its really helped me get the wordings of this very wonderful song – one of those songs which keeps coming up at strategic moments in one’s life. God bless you.
