"Everything you do is marvelous! Of this I have no doubt."

13 Weeks

Psalm 139

The LORD Is Always Near
 1You have looked deep
   into my heart, LORD,
   and you know all about me.
    2You know when I am resting
   or when I am working,
   and from heaven
   you discover my thoughts.
    3You notice everything I do
   and everywhere I go.
    4Before I even speak a word,
   you know what I will say,
    5and with your powerful arm
   you protect me
   from every side.
    6I can't understand all of this!
   Such wonderful knowledge
   is far above me.
    7Where could I go to escape
   from your Spirit
   or from your sight?
    8If I were to climb up
   to the highest heavens,
   you would be there.
   If I were to dig down
   to the world of the dead
   you would also be there.
    9Suppose I had wings
   like the dawning day
   and flew across the ocean.
    10Even then your powerful arm
   would guide and protect me.
    11Or suppose I said, "I'll hide
   in the dark
   until night comes
   to cover me over."
    12But you see in the dark
   because daylight and dark
   are all the same to you.
    13You are the one
   who put me together
   inside my mother's body,
    14and I praise you
   because of
   the wonderful way
   you created me.
   Everything you do is marvelous!
   Of this I have no doubt.
    15Nothing about me
   is hidden from you!
   I was secretly woven together
   deep in the earth below,
    16but with your own eyes
   you saw
   my body being formed.
   Even before I was born,
   you had written in your book
   everything I would do.
    17Your thoughts are far beyond
   my understanding,
   much more than I
   could ever imagine.
    18I try to count your thoughts,
   but they outnumber the grains
   of sand on the beach.
   And when I awake,
   I will find YOU nearby.
