Psalm 139:1-9

1 O Lord, you have searched me out and known me : you know my sitting down and my rising up; you discern my thoughts from afar.

2 You mark out my journeys and my resting place : and are acquainted with all my ways.

3 For there is not a word on my tongue : but you, O Lord, know it altogether.

4 You encompass me behind and before : and lay your hand upon me.

5 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me : so high that I cannot attain it.

6 Where can I go then from your spirit? : Or where can I flee from your presence?

7 If I climb up to heaven, you are there : if I make the grave my bed, you are there also.

8 If I take the wings of the morning : and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

9 Even there your hand shall lead me : your right hand hold me fast.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

Collect for the Day

Almighty God, in Christ you make all things new: transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace, and in the renewal of our lives make known your heavenly glory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
