O Lord thou hast me tried and known my




O Lord, thou hast me tried and known,
my sitting down dost know,
My rising up and thoughts far off
thou understand'st also.


My path, yea, and my bed likewise
thou art about always,
And by familiar custom art
acquainted with my ways:


No word is in my tongue, O Lord,
that is not known to thee;
Thou hast beset me round about,
and laid thy hand on me.


Such knowledge is too wonderful,
and past my skill to gain;
It is so high, that I unto
the same cannot attain.


From thy all-seeing Spirit then,
Lord, whither shall I go?
Or whither shall I fly away
from thy presence also?


For if to heav'n I do climb up,
1o, thou art present there;
In hell if I lie down below,
e'en there thou dost appear:


Yea, let me take the morning wings,
and let me go and dwell
E'en in the very utmost parts,
where flowing seas do swell:


Yet, certainly there also shall
thy hand me lead and guide,
And thy right hand shall hold me fast,
and make me to abide:


Or if I say The darkness shall
shroud me quite from thy sight,
E'en then the night that is most dark
about me shall be light.


The darkness hideth not from thee,
but night doth shine as day;
To thee the darkness and the light
are both alike alway.
