Psalm 139:1-6 (Oh Lord, Thou Hast Searched Me)

Psalm 139:1-6
KJV

Verse 1
Oh LORD, Thou hast searched me,
Thou hast searched me and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising,
Thou understandest my thought afar off.

Thou compassest my path and my lying down,
And art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word, not a word in my tongue,
But lo, O LORD Thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before,
And laid Thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.
It is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Thou hast beset me behind and before,
And laid thine hand upon me.
O LORD, Thou hast searched me,
Thou hast searched me, and known me.

Verse 2
Oh LORD, Thou hast searched me,
Thou hast searched me and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising,
Thou understandest my thought afar off.

Thou compassest my path and my lying down,
And art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word, not a word in my tongue,
But lo, O LORD Thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before,
And laid Thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.
It is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Thou hast beset me behind and before,
And laid Thine hand upon me.
O LORD, Thou hast searched me,
Thou hast searched me, and known me.

Is He Worthy?

Andrew Peterson,  Ben Shive

Verse 1

[Men] Do you feel the world is broken?
     [Ladies] We do.

[Men] Do you feel the shadows deepen?
      [Ladies] We do.

[Men] But do you know that all the dark won’t
              Stop the light from getting through?
     [Ladies] We do.

[Men] Do you wish that you could
             See it all made new?
     [Ladies] We do.

Verse 2

[Ladies] Is all creation groaning? 
        [Men] It is.

[Ladies] Is a new creation coming?
      [Men] It is.

[Ladies] Is the glory of the Lord to be
               The light within our midst?
      [Men] It is.

[Ladies] Is it good that we remind
                   Ourselves of this?
     [Men] It is.

Chorus
Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave!
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave.

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory,
Is He worthy of this?
He is.

Verse 3

[Men] Does the Father truly love us?
     [Ladies] He does.

[Men] Does the Spirit move among us?
     [Ladies] He does.

[Men] And does Jesus, our Messiah
              Hold forever those He loves?
     [Ladies] He does.

[Men] Does our God intend
               To dwell again with us?
     [Ladies] He does.

Chorus
Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave!
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
From every people and tribe,
Every nation and tongue,
He has made us a kingdom and priests to God
To reign with the Son!

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Is He worthy of this?

He is! He is!

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?

He is! He is!

He is worthy! He is worthy!
He is!

Highly Exalted

Robin Mark, Paul Baloche

Verse 1
You were despised
You were rejected, Lord.
Those who passed by
Even averted their gaze from your sight
Such was the suffering you bore for us.

Led like a lamb, a lamb to the slaughter
You spoke not a word
But chose to be silent
Though you did no wrong
Nor was deceitfulness found in you.

Yet by your wounds our salvation has come
Yet by your suffering our freedom is won!

Chorus
For God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names.

Verse 2
You were despised
You were rejected, Lord.
Those who passed by
Even averted their gaze from your sight.
Such was the suffering you bore for us.

Led like a lamb, a lamb to the slaughter
You spoke not a word,
But chose to be silent
Though you did no wrong
Nor was deceitfulness found in you.

Yet by your wounds our salvation has come
Yet by your suffering our freedom is won!

Chorus
For God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

Jesus, the name above all.

Lord, From Sorrows Deep I call

Matt Papa and Matt Boswell
Inspired by Psalm 42

Verse 1
Lord, from sorrows deep I call,
When my hope is shaken.
Torn and ruined from the fall,
Hear my desperation!
For so long I’ve pled and prayed!
God, come to my rescue!
Even so the thorn remains.
Still my heart will praise You.

Verse 2
Storms within my troubled soul,
Questions without answers.
On my faith these billows roll,
God, be now my shelter.
Why are you cast down my soul?
Hope in Him who saves you!
When the fires have all grown cold,
Cause this heart to praise You!

Chorus
O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

Verse 3
Should my life be torn from me,
Every worldly pleasure.
When all I possess is grief,
God, be then my treasure.
Be my vision in the night!
Be my hope and refuge.
Till my faith is turned to sight,
Lord, my heart will praise You!

Chorus
O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised
