Psalm 139: The Omniscience Psalm
(a conversation with God)
My child, I have searched you and I know you.
I see you, when you get up and go out,
where you go, what you do, when you go to bed.
I hear you, every word you say,
even your secret thoughts.
Lord, such knowledge is too much for me,
I feel your invisible touch, it’s over me, under me
it goes in front of me and it wraps behind me.
Could I run away from you? Where could I hide?
Where could you hide? I can see in the dark!
If I fly to the other side of the world
or zoom in a rocket into space?
I would be there!
And when I die?
I will run to embrace you!
I knit you together in your mother’s womb
I wove you in the dark before you were born.
I am wonderfully made – you did a good job!
How vast are your thoughts, O God!
I try to count them but numbers run out.
I come to the end of everything
and there you are, still there, waiting for me.
