The Lord discerns our deepest thought;
There's nothing hidden from His sight.
The counsel of the Lord is sought
By those who in His law delight.
The Lord beholds the sinner's heart
That still delights in hell's seduction
And yet refuses to depart
From that which leads him to destruction.
There is a way we can discern
The hearts that truly are His own:
All those who are His sheep will yearn
To follow Christ and make Him known.
O Lord, You have discerned all those
Who hear Your voice and follow too.
They are Your sheep because they chose
To place their heart's delight in You.
