2. Search me O God ( Psalm 139)

A friend, they say, is someone who knows all about you and still loves you. God is that friend.

G G C G

Search me O God, and know my heart.

D7

Test me and know my anxious thoughts.

G C G

See if there is any offensive way in me,

C G D D7 G

And lead me in the everlasting way.

C G

You know me well, you see inside my thoughts,

A7 D7

You know my every move and all my ways.

G C D7

Before I speak a word, you know what I will say.

G G C G

Search me O God, and know my heart.

D7

Test me and know my anxious thoughts.

G C G

See if there is any offensive way in me,

C G D D7 G

And lead me in the everlasting way.

C G

You hem me in, behind me and before,

A7 D7

You gently place your hand upon my head.

G C D7

I cannot comprehend how much you care.

G G C G

Search me O God, and know my heart.

D7

Test me and know my anxious thoughts.

G C G

See if there is any offensive way in me,

C G D D7 G

And lead me in the everlasting way.

C G

Where can I go from your Spirit?

C D7 G

Where can I flee from your presence?

Em Bm

If I go to the heavens you are there!

Am7 Edim

If I sink to the depths you are there!

G Bm D7

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

C D7

or settle on the far side of the sea,

G C2/G G

you’re guiding me.

C G

You formed me well inside my mother’s womb,

A7 D7

You knew me even then, a tiny frame.

G C D7

Inside that secret place, You gave me life.

G G C G

Search me O God, and know my heart.

D7

Test me and know my anxious thoughts.

G C G

See if there is any offensive way in me,

C G D D7 G

And lead me in the everlasting way.

C G D D7 G

And lead me in the everlasting way
