You try my reins, and search my heart;
Bid every anxious thought depart.
Above the clouds, beyond the skies
You smile at me with loving eyes.

I wonder why You do not speak;
Your silence somehow makes me weak.
I wish to know a lot of things;
My Hope stays true, unfaltering.

Beneath the toil and weariness,
My joy is You—this I confess.
Come challenge, poverty, or loss;
My life I gave You at the Cross.

Lord, search my heart and try my reins;
Forever to Your love I’m chained.
I do not wish to go astray;
You are my love in ev’ry day.
