If I rise

If I rise on the wings of the morning

If I sail to the end of the sea

If I hide at the edge of creation

You will be there, waiting for me.

If I say: “let the darkness deepen

‘til the light become dark and cold.”

Even darkness cannot defeat you

You will be turning the night to gold.

For you are my God, you search my life

You are familiar with all of my ways.

Search me, O God. Lay open my heart

Test me and know as I have been known

So all of my days are precious to you

Precious to you.
