where can i go?

what if i try to hide from you all day, Lord?

(Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?)

i avert my eyes all day and manage to busy my thoughts elsewhere,

(If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there)

and then i get into bed at the end of my day and finally meet your gaze, and you say,

"Come now, let us reason together."

and i'm back in your arms again, forgetting why i ever ran away in the first place.

(psalm 139 and isaiah 1 in italics).
