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.
