    You heard my first heartbeat before I could breathe 
    Before my first cry, You knew me 
    You knit me together when I was conceived 
    When I was designed, You knew me  

    You know what I wonder before I can speak 
    Before my first thoughts, You know me 
    You see what I'm dreaming when I go to sleep 
    When I'm waking up, You know me 

    I could run away or hide beneath the sea 
    You'd still hear my prayers 
    I could climb the peaks or dive beyond the deep 
    You are always there 

    You crafted the heavens and care for my soul 
    In all of your ways, You're holy 
    When I'm lost in darkness and far from my home 
    Your hand guides my way and holds me 

    I could run away or hide beneath the sea 
    You'd still hear my prayers 
    I could climb the peaks or dive beyond the deep 
    Oh, my God, You are there
      

    You are the God who knows and loves me 
    The God of David, the Rock of Ages 
    You are the King who dwells above me 
    The King of Zion, the Mighty Lion 

    I could run away or hide beneath the sea 
    You'd still hear my prayers 
    I could climb the peaks or dive beyond the deep 
    Oh, my God, You are there 

    Take a look here to read Psalm 139 as it was the basis for this song.

    When you listen to or read these words, what’s your response?  

    Do you find it hard to believe that God knit you together? That He knew you before you were even born? Maybe you think it’s creepy that God knows all your thoughts and actions before you do. You might even think, “what’s the point in praying when God knows everything anyway?”  

     

    Here are some truths from Psalm 139 that are worth holding on to. 
    1. You were designed and crafted into existence by the Creator – you are a masterpiece

    2. No matter where you’re at, God knows you and loves you 

    3. You are never outside of God’s love and God wants us to live as His beloved

    4. God is holy and His ways are perfect
