Psalm 139
Words: Trinity Psalter
Music: Maryton | Henry Percy Smith (1825–1898)
1. LORD, Thou hast searched me; Thou hast known
My rising and my sitting down;
And from afar Thou knowest well
The very thoughts that in me dwell.

2. Thou knowest all the ways I plan,
My path and lying down doest scan;
For in my tongue no work can be,
But, lo O LORD, ’tis known to Thee.

3. Behind, before me, Thou dost stand
And lay on me Thy might hand;
Such knowledge is for me too strange
And high beyond my utmost range.

4. Where shall I from Thy Spirit flee,
Or from Thy presence hidden be?
In heav’n Thou art, if there I fly,
In death’s abode, if there I lie.
