If I say, “Surely the darkness will [a]overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,”
Even the darkness is not dark [b]to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.
For You formed my [c]inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to You, for [d]I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
My [e]frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
