Psalm 139

Aaron Niequist

 

Search me, O God

And know my heart today

And test me and know all my thoughts.

Show me, O God

The wickedness in me

And wash me and lead me to You.

 

So search me.  

And know me.

And test me.  

And show me.

And wash me.  

And heal me.

And hold me.  

And free me.

 

I need You. 

I need You.

I love You. 

I need You.

 

Search me, O God

And know my heart today

And test me and know all my thoughts.

Show me, O God

The wickedness in me

And wash me and lead me to You.

Psalm 139

The tender ending of Psalm 139 is one of the most honest and brave prayers ever written down.  In fact, only someone who really trusted that God was good would ever dare pray it.  This song tries to embrace both the humble fragility and overwhelming power of laying your life open before a Holy God, and inviting Him in. Where terror meets trust.  Where awe meets insecurity. Where grace overcomes fear.
