Marsh, Joanna: Thou hast searched me and known me

Thou hast searched me and known me (2015)

O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising,
thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down,
and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue,
but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before,
and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high, I cannot attain to it.

Words: Psalm 139: 1–6
Music: Joanna Marsh (b. 1970)
