1. O Lord, my inmost heart and thought
Thy searching eye doth see;
Wher’e’er I rest, where’er I go,
My ways are known to Thee.
2. Each spoken work, each silent thought.
Thou, Lord, dost understand;
Before me and behind art Thou,
Restraining by Thy hand.
3. If I the wings of morning take
To some remotest land,
Still I shall be upheld by Thee
And guided by Thy hand.
4. From Thee, O Lord, I cannot hide,
Though darkness cover me;
The darkness and the light of day
Are both alike to Thee.
5. Search me, O God, and know my heart,
Try me, my thoughts to know;
O lead me, if in sin I stray,
In paths of life to go.
