Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: You made my soul before my birth; My mother’s womb, its hiding place, And in Your image gave me life. Each waking morn You’re still with me.
Verse 2: You search me, Lord, and know me well When I sit down and when I rise. Before I speak You know my words, Your knowledge is too great for me!
Verse 3: Lord, where I go Your Spirit is; If to the sky then You are there. If in the deep where spirits dwell, Your hand will guide and comfort me.
Chorus: And if I rise on wings of dawn, Or settle far across the sea, You’ll see me there, and with Your hand, You’ll draw me closer to Your heart.
