Yahweh, I know you are near,

9/17/2007

Yahweh, I know you are near,
standing always at my side.
You guard me from the foe,
and you lead me in ways everlasting.


Lord, you have searched my heart,
and you know when I sit and when I stand.
Your hand is upon me protecting me from death,
keeping me from harm.

Where can I run from Your love?
If I climb to the heavens You are there;
If I fly to the sunrise or sail beyond the sea,
still I'd find You there.

You know my heart and its ways,
you who formed me before I was born
in the secret of darkness before I saw the sun
in my mother's womb.

Marvelous to me are Your works;
how profound are Your thoughts, my Lord.
Even if I could count them, they number as the stars,
You would still be there.

This song is one of the most powerful I know. It speaks of God's omnipresence ... everywhere, in everything, and in every dimension of life.

Don't you just appreciate the composer of this song, who borrowed such powerful words from the psalmist? (Psalm 139)
