Lord you made us for yourself

And our hearts

Will find no rest

Until we rest in you.


In the womb you cared for me

You wove my life in secrecy

You knew the days ordained for me

Before they ever came to be



You have searched my mind, O Lord

You know my thoughts, my every word

And you have laid your hand on me

So wonderful, how can it be?



If I rise up with the morn

To ride upon the wings of dawn

I’ll never leave your loving care

For you are present everywhere


(References: Chorus = prayer of St Augustine; verses = Ps 139)
