|[A Psalm of David, when he was in the Wilderness of Judah. ]||Longing for God. Psalm 63(v62)|
|O God, thou art my God, I seek thee, my soul thirsts for thee; |
my flesh faints for thee, as in a dry and weary land where no water is.
|So I have looked upon thee in the sanctuary, |
beholding thy power and glory.
|Because thy steadfast love is better than life, |
my lips will praise thee.
|So I will bless thee as long as I live; |
I will lift up my hands and call on thy name.
|My soul is feasted as with marrow and fat, |
and my mouth praises thee with joyful lips,
|when I think of thee upon my bed, |
and meditate on thee in the watches of the night;
|for thou hast been my help, |
and in the shadow of thy wings I sing for joy.
|My soul clings to thee; |
thy right hand upholds me.
|But those who seek to destroy my life |
shall go down into the depths of the earth;
|they shall be given over to the power of the sword, |
they shall be prey for jackals.
|But the king shall rejoice in God; |
all who swear by him shall glory;
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
