So my soul ▼
▼ Lit longs for, d pants for You, O God.
2 My soul e thirsts for God, for the f living God;
When shall I come and ▼
▼ Some mss read see the face of God, h appear before God?
3 My i tears have been my food day and night,
While they j say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
4 These things I remember and I k pour out my soul within me.
For I l used to go along with the throng and ▼
▼ Or move slowly with themlead them in procession to the house of God,
With the voice of n joy and thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival.

And His song will be with me af in the night,
A prayer to ag the God of my life.

10 As a shattering of my bones, my adversaries revile me,
While they al say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
11 am Why are you ▼ in despair, O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
▼ Or Wait forHope in God, for I shall yet praise Him,
▼ Or saving acts ofhelp of my countenance and my God.
