The all-seeing God

Hymnal: Doctor Watts's imitation of the Psalms of David, to which is added a collection of hymns; the whole applied to the state of the Christian Church in general (3rd ed.) #246 (1786) Topics: All-seeing God; Appeal to God concerning our sincerity; Heart known to God; All-seeing God; Appeal to God concerning our sincerity; Heart known to God First Line: Lord, thou hast search'd and seen me thro' Lyrics: 1 Lord, thou hast search'd 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-e'er I rove, where-e'er I rest; Nor let my weaker passions dare Consent to sin, for God is there. Pause I. 6 Could I so false, so faithless prove, To quit thy service and thy love, Where, Lord, could I thy presence shun, Or from thy dreadful glory run? 7 If up to heaven I take my flight, 'Tis there thou dwell'st enthron'd in light; Or dive to hell, there vengeance reigns, And Satan groans beneath thy chains. 8 If mounted on a morning ray I fly beyond the Western sea, Thy swifter hand would first arrive, And there arrest thy fugitive. 9 Or should I try to shun thy sight Beneath the spreading veil of night, One glance of thine, one piercing ray Would kindle darkness into day. 10 Oh may these thoughts possess my breast, Where-e'er I rove, where-e'er I rest; Nor let my weaker passions dare Consent to sin, for God is there. Pause II. 11 The veil of night is no disguise, No screen from thy All-searching eyes; Thy hand can seize thy foes as soon Through midnight shades as blazing noon. 12 Midnight and noon in this agree, Great God, they're both alike to thee, Not death can hide what God will spy, And hell lies naked to his eye. 13 Oh may these thoughts possess my breast, Where-e'er I rove, where-e'er I rest! Nor let my weaker passions dare Consent to sin, for God is there. Languages: English

In hell they meet thy dreadful fire, In heaven thy glorious throne. 7 Should I suppress my vital breath To ’scape the wrath divine, Thy voice would break the bars of death, And make the grave resign. 8 If wing'd with beams of morning-light I fly beyond the west, Thy hand, which must support my flight, Would soon betray my rest. 9 If o’er my sins I think to draw The curtains of the night, Those flaming eyes that guard thy law Would turn the shades to light. 10 The beams of moon, the midnight-hour Are both alike to thee: Oh may I ne’er provoke that power From which I cannot flee.
