    Psalm 139: 1-3, 7-16
    You have searched me, Lord and you know me
    You know when I sit and when I rise
    You know my thoughts from afar
    You searched me, and you know me
    Where can I flee from your presence?
    If I fall to the depths, you are there.
    If I rise up on the wings of the dawn, or if darkness hides me,
    Your right hand holds me fast.
    The night will shine like day,
    The dark is light to you.

    For you created my inmost being
    You knit me in my mother’s womb
    I praise you, because I am
    fearfully and wonderfully made.
    Your works are wonderful
    I know that fully well.
    Your eyes saw my unformed body before I was made,
    All of my days were ordained
    before one came to be.
    You have searched me, Lord
    and you know me.
