Psalm 139:1–4 (Listen)
Search Me, O God, and Know My Heart
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
139:1 O LORD, you have searched me and known me!
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.
3 You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.
Lamentations 3:22–23 (Listen)
22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;1
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Hymn: TLH 537 :
Every Morning Mercies New
1. Every morning mercies new
Fall as fresh as morning dew;
Every morning let us pay
Tribute with the early day;
For Thy mercies, Lord, are sure,
Thy compassion doth endure.
2. Still the greatness of Thy love
Daily doth our sins remove;
Daily, far as east from west,
Lifts the burden from the breast;
Gives unbought to those who pray
Strength to stand in evil day.
3. Let our prayers each morn prevail
That these gifts may never fail;
And as we confess the sin
And the Tempter’s power within,
Feed us with the Bread of Life;
Fit us for our daily strife.
4. As the morning light returns,
As the sun with splendor burns,
Teach us still to turn to Thee,
With our hands our hearts to raise
In unfailing prayer and praise.
