My heart and ways, O God

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My heart and ways, O God!
By thee are search'd and seen;
My outward acts thine eye observes,
My secret thoughts within.

2 No spot the realms of space,
Whence thou art absent, know.
In heav'n thou reign'st a glorious King.
A righteous Judge below.

3 Lord! if within my heart
Thou aught should'st disapprove:
The secret evil bring to light,
And by thy grace remove.

4 If e'er I've been perverse
Or foolish in thy view:
Recall my steps to thy commands,
And form my life anew.
