Psalm 139 (Far Too Wonderful)

Below is the song Psalm 139 (Far Too Wonderful) by Shane & Shane:

Lyrics:

You wrote the story of my life
You go before, you fall behind, yeah
Before a breath, beyond my death

You are with me all the way
to everlasting

Oh I can’t run, I can’t hide
Even darkness is a light
From the lowest place to the highest praise
You are worthy
Amazing love, how can it be
Far too wonderful for me
There’s only one thing left to say
You are worthy, oh

Search me God and know my heart
Try me, know my anxious thoughts, yeah
Find the wickedness in me and lead me in the way
Everlasting

Oh I can’t run, I can’t hide
Even darkness is a light
From the lowest place to the highest praise
You are worthy
Amazing love how can it be
Far too wonderful for me
There’s only one thing left to say
You are worthy, oh

You formed me in my mother’s womb
You know my frame, my flesh, and bone
Oh, how wonderfully made
Oh I can’t describe, it’s way too high
You see me through and through
and call me loved
What a wonderful grace, oh
Oh I can’t run, I can’t hide
Even darkness is a light
From the lowest place to the highest praise
You are worthy
Amazing love, how can it be
Far too wonderful for me
There’s only one thing left to say
You are worthy, oh


Scripture:

Psalm 139
English Standard Version (ESV)

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

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.
5 You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it.
7 Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
9 If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,”
12 even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
13 For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
19 Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God!
O men of blood, depart from me!
20 They speak against you with malicious intent;
your enemies take your name in vain.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?
22 I hate them with complete hatred;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
24 And see if there be any grievous way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting!
