Lord, you discern my thoughts from afar…

Psalm 139:1-5, 12-17
Domine, probasti

Lord, you have searched me out and known me; *
 
you know my sitting down and my rising up;
 
you discern my thoughts from afar.
 
 
You trace my journeys and my resting-places *
 
and are acquainted with all my ways.
 
 
Indeed, there is not a word on my lips, *
 
but you, O Lord, know it altogether.
 
 
You press upon me behind and before *
 
and lay your hand upon me.
 

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; *
 
it is so high that I cannot attain to it.
 
 

For you yourself created my inmost parts; *
 
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
 
 
I will thank you because I am marvelously made; *
 
your works are wonderful, and I know it well.
 
 
My body was not hidden from you, *
 
while I was being made in secret
 
and woven in the depths of the earth.
 
 
Your eyes beheld my limbs, yet unfinished in the womb;
 
all of them were written in your book; *
 
they were fashioned day by day,
 
when as yet there was none of them.
 
 
How deep I find your thoughts, O God! *
 
how great is the sum of them!
 
 
If I were to count them, they would be more in number than the sand; *
 
to count them all, my life span would need to be like yours.

 

Life is just like a painting.

You draw the lines with prayers,

Clean the errors with repentence,

and colour it with love.
