lyrics

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1 LORD, you have searched me and known me;
2 You know when I sit and when I rise up.
You discern my thoughts from a long way off;
3 You search out my path and lying down.

You are familiar with all my ways;
4 Before I speak, LORD, you know all that I say.
5 You bind me front and back, lay on me your hand.
6 Such is knowledge far too great for me—
High above where I could never reach.

7 Where shall I go without your Spirit there?
Where shall I flee your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven you are there;
If I sleep in the grave you are there.

9 If on the wings of the sunrise
I fly and dwell at the end of the sea,
10 Even there your hand shall be leading me,
And your right hand shall lay hold of me.

11 If I say, "Darkness will cover me;
The light behind me will surely be as night."
12 Even there the dark is not dark to you.
For the night is bright as in the day;
Darkness is as light, one and the same!

13 For you have knit me in my mother's womb;
You formed my inward parts.
14 I will praise you for fearful, wondrous work;
Wonderful are your works, my soul knows well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you,
When in the secret You wove me deep in earth.
16 Your eyes looked upon my substance yet unformed.
In your book were written all my days;
They were formed when none had taken place!

17 How precious are your thoughts to me, O God;
How countless is their sum.
18 If I should count, still they are more than sand.
I awake, and still, I am with you.

19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God!
Men of blood leave me, 20 malicious, cursing enemies!
21 I hate all those who hate you, LORD, detest your rising foes!
22 I hate with perfect hate; they are my enemies!

23 O Search me, O God, and know what’s in my heart;
Try me and know my thoughts.
24 See if there be a grievous way in me;
Lead me in the way eternal.
