Lyrics (Psalm 139:1b-3, 13-14ab, 14c-15):
Response: I praise you, for I am wonderfully made.
O LORD, you have probed me, you know me:
you know when I sit and when I stand;
you understand my thoughts from afar.
My journeys and my rest you scrutinize,
with all my ways you are familiar. Response
Truly you have formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother�s womb.
I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made;
wonderful are your works. Response
My soul also you knew full well;
nor was my frame unknown to you
When I was made in secret,
when I was fashioned in the depths of the earth. Response
Response: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
You, child, will be called prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way. Response
