Lord, You know me; You understand my
most private thoughts. You can tune into
what I feel; You are familiar with all that I do or say.
Lord, even before I speak or act, You know it.
You are in front of me, behind me, within me, beside me.
You rest Your hand upon me;
You guide me; You protect me. You are my shepherd;
You bring me to green pastures; to cal waters You lead me.
“Come,” says my heart, “seek the Lord;” You,
O Lord, do I seek! Do not hide from me;
do not reject me in anger; do not cast me off,
God my savior!
