Representative Text

1 Search me, O God, and know my heart,
Thy perfect love to me impart;
Try me and know my ev'ry thought,
That I may live as Thou has hast taught.

Refrain:
Search me O God; search me, O God;
O search Thou me, Almighty God.

2 Search out in me all hidden sin,
And may Thy purity within
So cleanse my life, that it may be
A temple wholly fit for Thee. [Refrain]

3 O search my life, my will, my all,
As now on Thee, my Lord, I call;
Purge me from self, and sanctify
My life, while Thee I glorify. [Refrain]
