O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soulthirsteth for thee, my fleshlongeth for thee in a dry and thirstyaland, where nowater is;
To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.3
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.5
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrowb and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyfullips:6
When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.7
Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice .
My soul followeth hardafter thee: thy right handupholdeth me.
But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.10
They shall fallc by the sword : they shall be a portion for foxes.11
But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory : but the mouth of them that speaklies shall be stopped .
