My Soul Thirsts for You
A Psalm of David, a when he was in the wilderness of Judah.1 O God, you are my God; b earnestly I seek you;
c my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in d a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding e your power and glory.
3Because your f steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
4So I will bless you g as long as I live;
in your h name I will i lift up my hands.
5 My soul will be j satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
6when I remember you k upon my bed,
and meditate on you in l the watches of the night;
7for you have been my help,
and in m the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
8My soul n clings to you;
your right hand o upholds me.
9 But those who seek to destroy my life
p shall go down into q the depths of the earth;
10they shall be given over to the power of the sword;
they shall be a portion for jackals.
11But r the king shall rejoice in God;
all who s swear by him shall exult,
t for the mouths of u liars will be stopped.
