O God You Search Me
D G A D O God you search me and you know me, D G A All my thoughts lie open to your gaze. Bm G D G When I walk or lie down you are before me: Em G A D Ever the maker and keeper of my days. D G A D You know my resting and my rising. D G A You discern my purpose from afar, Bm G D G And with love everlasting you besiege me: Em G A D In every moment of life and death, you are. D G A D Before a word is on my tongue, Lord, D G A You known it's meaning all the way through, Bm G D G You are with me beyond my understanding: Em G A D God of my present, past and future, too. D G A D Although your spirit is upon me, D G A Still I search for shelter from your light. Bm G D G There is nowhere on earth I can escape you: Em G A D Even the darkness is radiant in your light. D G A D For you created me and shaped me, D G A Gave me life within my mother's womb. Bm G D G For the wonder of who I am I praise you: Em G A D Safe in your hands, all creation is made new.
