Alex Hill always produces music of great appeal with liturgical significance.
His careful attention to musical and ecclesial tradition continues with Search Me, Lord.
This setting of Psalm 139 includes a tuneful refrain and verses set to an original "Anglican-style" psalm tone.
The verses of Search Me, Lord are arranged as follows: 1-4 / 7-10 / 13-15 / 16-18.
The text of the refrain,
"Search me, Lord, and know my heart.
Try me, Lord, and know my thoughts.
Free me from all winding ways and lead me in the path of life."
mirrors the beauty and depth of the verses.
Although this psalm is useful throughout the year, it has particular relevance during Lent, when it would make an appropriate Opening Liturgical Song.
