Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

My heart and ways, O God

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.
