Search Me, See Me



Tune: Kings Weston

('slower tune' to 'At the name of Jesus')

Psalm 139 v.1-6 & v.23-24

*************

Lord, you have searched, known me

All my life you see

You know when I sit, rise

To you no surprise

You know my thoughts from far

You bright Morning Star

Stay now, be my comfort

This my happy lot

 

You understand me full

You hear when I call

You surround my pathway

Ever with me stay

All my ways you do know

And all here below

Nothing hid from your sight

Bright e'er shines your light

 

You know all words I speak

May I humble, meek

Speak of what does please you

With your grace renew

Before I say any

Words, few or many

You Lord know what they be

Omnisciently* (*all-knowingly)

 

You are behind, before

Me, your presence sure

Is there always, no place

Be hid from your face

You have your hand on me

Now and constantly

Beyond my full knowledge

You to me do pledge

 

So here my response be

Search me God, and see

Know my heart, and try me

Know my thoughts, whole, free

See if there any way

Wicked here today

Within me, and lead me

To e'erlasting day

      Thanks Gold. Some publishers get silly - must have 'always' not 'alway'; and 'forever' not 'fore'er'.
      Haven't they heard of poetic form?! Doh!
