Thou knowest all that I have planned, And all my ways are in Thy

hand.

2 My words from Thee I cannot hide, 4 If I the wings of morning take, I feel Thy power on every side;

And far away my dwelling make, O wondrous knowledge, awful might, The hand that leadeth me is Thine, Unfathomed depth,unmeasured height! And my support Thy power divine.

[blocks in formation]

I give my Mak - er thank-ful praise, Whose wondrous works my soul a- maze.

2 E’er into being I was brought,

Thy eye did see, and in Thy thought
My life in all its perfect plan
Was ordered e'er my days began.

['Stanzas 6-10) 4 The wicked Thou wilt surely slay,

From me let sinners turn away;
They speak against the Name divine,
I count God's enemies as mine.

3 Thy thoughts, O God, how manifold, 5 Search me, O God, my heart discern, More precious unto me than gold! Try me, my inmost thought to learn; I muse on their infinity,

And lead me, if in sin I stray, Awaking I am still with Thee.

To choose the everlasting way.

(Selected Stanzas ] 2 Each spoken word, each silent thought, 4 From Thee, O Lord, I cannot hide, Thou, Lord, dost understand;

Though darkness cover me; Before me and behind art Thou,

The darkness and the light of day Restraining by Thy hand.

Are both alike to Thee.

2 When in the morning unto Thee 5 O righteous God, Thy chastisement,

I lift my voice and bring my plea, Though sent through foes, in love is Then let my prayer as incense rise

sent; To God enthroned above the skies. Though grievous, it will profit me,

A healing ointment it shall be. 3 When unto Thee I look and pray With lifted hands at close of day,

6 While wickedness my foes devise, Then as the evening sacrifice

To Thee my constant prayer shall rise;

When their injustice is o'erthrown Let my request accepted rise.

My gentleness shall still be shown. 4 Guard Thou my thoughts, I Thee im- 7 Brought nigh to death and sore displore,

tressed,
And of my lips keep Thou the door; O Lord, my God, in Thee I rest;
Nor leave my sinful heart to stray Forsake me not, I look to Thee,
Where evil footsteps lead the way. Let me Thy great salvation see.

8 Themselves entangled in their snare,

Their own defeat my foes prepare;
O keep me, Lord, nor let me fall,
Protect and lead me safe through all.
