Psalm 121, 1 Timothy 1:17

"Jacob and I went to see The Hobbit in the theater when it came out. There is a scene in the movie when the dwarves are doing battle and they’re alone and then a dwarf comes riding in and declares ‘To the king!’ and it was a really epic moment. Jacob immediately had a song idea around the phrase ‘To the king! I look to the king’ which has become a sort of war cry for us. Our eyes are on God, the king eternal. If we fix our eyes God, we are winning. We had the chorus for a long time and collaborated with Matt Maher to round out the song." (Meredith Andrews)

Lyrics:

On the battlefield where the fight is waged
My enemy is real and my courage fades
I lift my eyes, I lift my eyes, where does my help come from

(Chorus)
I look to the King
Eternal, Immortal, Invincible God
I stand on the Rock of Ages,
My Savior, He conquered it all
I look to the King, I look to the King

On the battlefield of all that lies ahead
Here Your blood will speak
A greater word than death
I lift my eyes, I lift my eyes, where does my help come from

Victorious, You are victorious
Reigning over us, forevermore
Victorious, You are victorious
Reigning over us, forevermore
