The following biblical passage recited by Krista and read during the program was taken from Celebrating Common Prayer: A Version of the Daily Office SSF.
Lord, you have searched me out and known me,
|your works are wonderful and I know it well.|
My body was not hidden from you,
while I was being made in secret
and woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes beheld my limbs, yet unfinished in the womb;
all of them were written in your book;
they were fashioned day by day,
when as yet there was none of them.
How deep I find your thoughts, O God!
how great is the sum of them!
If I were to count them,
they would be more in number than the sand;
to count them all,
my life span would need to be like yours.
[O that you would slay the wicked, O God!
you that thirst for blood, depart from me.
They speak despitefully against you;
your enemies take your name in vain.
Do I not hate those, O Lord, who hate you?
and do I not loathe those who rise up against you?
I hate them with a perfect hatred;
they have become my own enemies.]
Search me out, O God, and know my heart;
try me and know my restless thoughts.
Look well whether there be any wickedness in me
and lead me in the way that is everlasting.
