Lord, you have searched me
Lord, you have known me
You are inside me
And all around me
You discern my thoughts from afar.

You search out my path
You watch as I lie down
You know all my ways,
know all my ways.

Lord, you have searched me
Lord, you have known me
You are inside me
And all around me
Your hand rests upon my head.

You walk before me,
You walk behind
You watch from above,
lift from below.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.

Where can I go where You are not?
Where can my eyes turn,
In what direction?
North, south, here, there,
East, west, near, far,
Length, breadth, depth, height,
That's where You are:

If I ascend to heaven You are there,
there at my side.
If I suffer pain and sorrow
You are by my side.
And if I ride the wings of morning,
You are there.

Alleluia, Alleluia!
Alleluia, Alleluia!

(north south, east, west,
up down all around,
that's where You are,
that's where You are!)

Raise the palm leaves high O people of Jerusalem
Raise the cry of your long-awited hope!
On a donkey's back rides the Prince of Love, the Prince of Peace,
Praise His name, sing Alleluia!

Let your joyfyl singing welcome God in human form,
Long-awaited, hope re-kindled, life renewed,
One of us He comes, Man-in-God and God-in-Man
Praise His name, sing Alleluia!

Palms! Palms! We come to You with Palms!
Praise You with instruments and psalms.
Bells ring! New wine flows!
Stones sing, and we'll follow where you go:
Though your path be hard we'll stand by you
Our King and Savior, all You do
is for the cause of righteousness,
renew our land! the people bless
with prosperity and happiness!

(ding dong, ding dong,
Alleluia, alleluia,
Sing Hosanna!)

Psalm 62
Aria for soprano, flute, and string quartet
copyright 2006 KE Peace

words adapted from Psalm 62

For God alone my soul waits in silence
He is my Rock; I'll not be moved!
He is my fortress and my salvation.
My Rock, my Hope, my God, my Fortress
And my salvation!

How long will you set upon a man -
To shatter him, all of you,
Like a leaning wall, a broken fence?

God has spoken, and I have heard His voice:
Power belongs to Me
Who am endless and timeless,
The Alpha and Omega,
Who am that am.

Oh, beloved ones,
Trust in Him always.
Pour out your heart to Him
As to a tender mother
And in His mighty arms
He will embrace you,
Hide you in his cloak.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
