Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

36. Lord, Thou Hast Searched Me

1 Lord, thou hast searched me, and dost know
where'er I rest, where'er I go;
thou knowest all that I have planned,
and all my ways are in thy hand.

2 My words from thee I cannot hide;
I feel thy pow'r on every side;
O wondrous knowledge, awesome might,
unfathomed depth, unmeasured height!

3 Where can I go apart from thee,
or whither from thy presence flee?
In heav'n? - it is thy dwelling fair;
in death's abode? - lo, thou art there.

4 If I the wings of morning take,
and far away my dwelling make,
the hand that leadeth me is thine,
and my support thy pow'r divine.

5 If deepest darkness cover me,
the darkness hideth not from thee;
to thee both night and day are bright,
the darkness shineth as the light.
