Representative Text

O Lord, my God, you know all my ways,
when I sleep and I rise, when I sit or stand;
and before any word is upon my tongue
you discern it as though I had spoken it.
Where can I go to be far from you?
In the deepest of caves, in the heights of heaven?
If I rise up and fly on the wings of dawn,
still your right hand will guide me and hold me fast.
O Lord, my God, you created me,
in a wonderful way you have fashioned me.
Test my spirit and see what is in my heart;
lead me on in the way to eternal life.
