Psalm 139:4 First Part (in All My Vast Concerns With Thee)

Psalm 139:4. First Part. C. M.
God is every where.


In all my vast concerns with thee
In vain my soul would try
To shun thy presence, Lord, or flee
The notice of thine eye.

Thy all-surrounding sight surveys
My rising and my rest,
My public walks, my private ways,
And secrets of my breast.

My thoughts lie open to the Lord
Before they're form'd within:
And ere my lips pronounce the word,
He knows the sense I mean.

O wondrous knowledge, deep and high!
Where can a creature hide?
Within thy circling arms I lie,
Beset on every side.

So let thy grace surround me still,
And like a bulwark prove,
To guard my soul from every ill,
Secur'd by sovereign love.

PAUSE.

Lord, where shall guilty souls retire,
Forgotten and unknown?
In hell they meet thy dreadful fire,
In heaven thy glorious throne.

Should I suppress my vital breath
To 'scape the wrath divine,
Thy voice would break the bars of death,
And make the grave resign.

If wing'd with beams of morning light,
I fly beyond the west,
Thy hand, which must support my flight,
Would soon betray my rest.

If o'er my sins I think to draw
The curtains of the night,
Those flaming eyes that guard thy law
Would turn the shades to light.

The beams of noon, the midnight hour,
Are both alike to thee:
O may I ne'er provoke that power
From which I cannot flee!

Psalm 139:5 Second Part (when I With Pleasing Wonder Stand)
Psalm 139:5. Second Part. C. M.The wisdom of God in the formation of man.When I with pleasing wonder stand,And all my frame survey,Lord, 'tis thy work; I own thy handThus built my humble clay. Thy hand my heart and reins possestWhere unborn nature grew,Thy wisdom all my features trac'd,And all my members drew. Thine eye with nicest care survey'dThe growth of every part;Till the whole scheme thy thoughts had laidWas copied by thy art.Heaven, earth, and sea, and fire, and wind,Shew me thy wondrous skill;But I review myself, and findDiviner wonders still.Thy awful glories round me shine,My flesh proclaims thy praise;Lord,
