|139 (3)||Psalm 139 Version 3|
(from v 14)
|ALL that I am I owe to Thee,
Thy wisdom, Lord, has fashioned me;
I give my Maker humblest praise,
Whose wondrous works my soul amaze.
|2||Ere into being I was brought,
Thine eye did see, and in Thy thought
My life in all its perfect plan
Was ordered, ere my days began.
|3||Thy thoughts, O God, how manifold,
More precious unto me than gold!
I muse on their infinity;
Awaking, I am still with Thee.
|4||Search me, O God, my heart discern,
Try me, my inmost thought to learn;
And lead me, if in sin I stray,
To choose the everlasting way.
|The Psalter, 1912|
