1. If I take the wings of the morning, fly away to an isle of the sea,
Even there would Your eye behold me; Whither from your presence I flee?
Where will I hide from Thee, O God; Whither, Lord, Whither will I flee?
Search me and know all the thoughts of my heart, and ever will I sing praise to Thee.
2. If I say, "I'll hide in the darkness; Let it be in concealment to me,"
Yet the night shall be light around me; day and night are alike unto Thee.
3. All your precious thoughts, could I count them, they would be as the grains of sand;
and I know before I was fashioned, in Your book was my substance planned.
