"You have searched me Lord, and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
You see my thoughts from afar;
You discern my going out and my lying down;
You are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is even on my tongue,
You, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
You lay Your Hand on me.
Where can I go from Your Presence?
Where can I flee from Your Spirit?
If I go up to the heavens, You are there;
If I make my bed in the depths, You are there;
If I rise on the wings of dawn,
If I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there Your Hand will guide me.
Your right Hand will hold me fast.
If I say "Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light will become night around me",
even the darkness will not be dark to You.
The night will shine like the day, for darkness
is as light to You.
For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother's womb;
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body
and all the days ordained for me were
written in Your book before even one of them came to be.
How precious to me are Your thoughts, God !
How vast is the sum of them !
Were I to count them, they would outnumber
the grains of sand;
and yet when I wake, I am still with You"
~ Psalm 139:1-18
