Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: Laudes Domini #150 (1888) Hymnal Title: Laudes Domini First Line: Lord! thou hast searched, and seen me thro' Lyrics: 1 Lord! thou hast searched and seen me thro';
Thine eye commands, with piercing view,
My rising and my resting hours,
My heart and flesh, with all their powers.
2 My thoughts, before they are my own,
Are to my God distinctly known;
He knows the words I mean to speak,
Ere from my opening lips they break.
3 Within thy circling power I stand;
On every side I find thy hand;
Awake, asleep, at home, abroad,
I am surrounded still with God.
4 Amazing knowledge, vast and great!
What large extent! what lofty height!
My soul, with all the powers I boast
Is in the boundless prospect lost.
5 Oh, may these thoughts possess my breast,
Where'er I rove, where'er I rest;
Nor let my weaker passions dare
Consent to sin, for God is there. Topics: God: The Father Scripture: Genesis 3:8 Languages: English Tune Title: TRURO
