HEAR MY PRAYER, O LORD
Source: Psalm 143:1, 6, 8
Publisher: Cedar Crest Music, © 2011
Music by Daniel Burton

Hear my prayer, O Lord; in your faithfulness, answer me.
I stretch forth my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you.
Help me hear your kindness in the morning, for in you do I trust.
Help me know the way I should walk; I lift my soul to you.

LORD JESUS, THINK ON ME
Lyricist: Synesius of Cyrene (4th century)
Publisher: Cedar Crest Music, © 2011
Music by Daniel Burton

Lord Jesus, think on me and purge away my sin;
From earthborn passions set me free, and make me pure within.

Lord Jesus, think on me, by anxious thought oppressed;
Your loving servant let me be, and taste your promised rest.

Lord Jesus, think on me; nor let me go astray;
Through darkness, fear and despair point out the heavenly way.

Lord Jesus, think on me; that when the flood is past,
I may the eternal brightness see and share your joy at last.

LORD, YOU HAVE SEARCHED ME AND KNOWN ME
Source: Psalm 139: 1, 2, 4, 5, 9, 10
Publisher: Cedar Crest Music, © 2011
Music: Daniel Burton

Lord, you have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting and my rising; you understand my thought from afar.
There is no word on my tongue but you, O Lord, know it all.
You, Lord, have strengthened me behind and before and laid your hand
upon me.
If I take the wings of the mornng and fly to the farthest sea, even then your
hand will lead me, and your right hand will hold me.

PRAYER OF EPHREM
Lyricist: Ephrem the Syrian (4th century)
Publisher: Cedar Crest Music, © 2011
Music by Daniel Burton

O Lord and Master of my life!
But give to me, your servant, a spirit of humility, a spirit of patience, a spirit of
love.
Take from me dullness of spirit, lust for power and idle talk.
Lord God and King! Grant me to see my own faults and not to judge my
neighbor.
For you, O Lord and Master of my life, are blessed to the ages of ages.

SEARCH NOT FOR GOD
Source: Eckhart von Hochheim, also known as Meister Eckhart, 13th-14th
century
Publisher: Cedar Crest Music, © 2011
Music by Daniel Burton

Search not for God, neither here nor there;
No farther than your heart’s door stands he expectantly.
No need to call: he waits with urgency far beyond your own.
God is so near to us, yet we are turned away.
God is within; we are without.
God is at home with us; we are strangers to ourselves.
Search not for God.

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
Source: Psalm 23, entire
Publisher: Cedar Crest Music, © 2011
Music by Daniel Burton (www.danielburton.org)

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his
name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no
evil: for you are with me: your rod and your staff they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint
my head with oil: my cup overflows.

Surely good-ness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will
dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
