Behind and Before
David Cooper

Lord, You have searched me and You know my heart
You know when I sit and when I rise
Lord, You have searched my every thought from afar
You know every word before I speak
You have laid Your hand upon me
A wonder far beyond my mind
Behind and before, You hem me in

If I go up to the heavens, You are there
The depths cannot hide me from Your eyes
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, You are there
And if I settle across the sea
Even there Your hand will guide me
Your right hand will hold me fast
Behind and before, You hem me in

You created me in the secret place
You wove me together in the depths
My frame could not be hidden from Your face
I’m fearfully and wonderfully made
All my days were laid before You
Before any came to be
Behind and before, You hem me in
