Representative Text

1 Lord, Thou hast search’d me, and hast known
My rising up and laying down,
And from afar Thy searching eye
Beholds my thoughts that secret lie.

Refrain:
Whither, whither shall my footsteps fly,
Beyond the Spirit’s searching eye?
O whither, whither shall my footsteps fly,
Beyond the Spirit’s searching eye?

2 Thou know’st my path and lying down,
And all my ways to Thee are known;
For in my tongue no word can be,
But, lo, O Lord, ‘tis known to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Behind, before me, Thou dost stand,
And lay on me Thy mighty hand;
Such knowledge is for me too strange,
‘Tis high beyond my utmost range. [Refrain]

4 O whither shall my footsteps fly,
Beyond Thy Spirit’s searching eye!
To what retreat shall I repair,
And find not Thy dread presence there! [Refrain]

5 If I to heaven shall ascend,
Thy presence there will me attend;
If in the grave I make my bed,
Lo, there I find Thy presence dread. [Refrain]

6 If on the morning wings I flee,
And dwell in utmost parts of the sea;
Even there Thy hand shall guide my way,
And Thy right hand shall be my stay. [Refrain]

7 Of, if I say, to shun Thine eye,
In shades of darkness I will lie,
Around me then the very night
Will shine as shines the noon-day light. [Refrain]

8 From Thee the shades can nought disguise,
The night is day before Thine eyes;
The darkness is to Thee as bring
As are the beams of noon-day light. [Refrain]
