|Where can we hide or whither fly,|
Lord, to escape thy piercing eye?
With Thee there is not day and night,
But darkness shineth as the light.
Wherever we go, whatever pursue.
Our ways are open to Thy view;
Our motives read, our thoughts explored,
Our hearts revealed to Thee, the Lord.
Awake, asleep, where none intrude,
Or midst the thronging multitude,
In every land, on every sea,
We are surrounded still by Thee.
Search us Oh God, and know each heart;
With every idol bid us part;
Help us to keep thy holy ways,
And live to utter forth Thy praise.
