You know me (Psalm 139)

Lord, you know me and everything in me.
                You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
                You know all my thoughts
                You know all the words I will say. 
Where can I go Lord?  You are everywhere
                In the heavens, you are there
                In the depths, you are there
                From the wings of the dawn in the east to the far side of the sea in
                the west, you are there
                In the blackest of night, you are there
                Everywhere your hand will guide me and hold me fast.

You know me so completely because you made me
                You knit me together in my mother’s womb      
                You grew me from a tiny egg into a baby
                You put together all my organs, muscles, vessels and skin
                You planned each day of my life before it started
                Thank you for making me fearfully and wonderfully

Because you know me Lord, you know everything
                Search me
                Know my heart
                Test me
                Know my anxious thoughts

Help me to see my sins, my failings, my disobedience
Find the offensive ways in me Lord and clean them

Lord, mighty God, lead me in the way everlasting

All for your great praise and honour

Amen
