Hymn/Song Information

Where can we hide or whither fly Lord to




Where can we hide, or whither fly,
Lord, to escape thy piercing eye?
With thee there is not day and night,
But darkness shineth as the light.


Where’er we go, whate’er pursue,
Our ways are open to thy view;
Our motives read, our thoughts explored,
Our hearts revealed to thee the Lord.


Is there throughout all worlds, one spot,
One lonely wild where thou art not?
The hosts of heaven enjoy thy care,
And those of hell know thou art there.


Awake, asleep, where none intrude,
Or midst the thronging multitude,
In every land, on every sea,
We are surrounded, still, with thee.


Search us, O God, and know each heart,
With every idol bid us part;
Make us to keep thy holy ways,
And live to utter forth thy praise.


---Alternative verses---


Where’er we go, whate’er pursue,
Our ways are open to thy view;
Our motives read, our thoughts explored,
Our hearts revealed to thee, O Lord.
