The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God.

1 O God, 1You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul 2thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a 3dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 Thus I have 4seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.
3 Because Your 5lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You.
4 So I will bless You 6as long as I live; I will 7lift up my hands in Your name.
5 My soul is 8satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers 9praises with joyful lips.
6 When I remember You 10on my bed, I meditate on You in the 11night watches,
7 For 12You have been my help, And in the 13shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.
8 My soul 14clings to You; Your 15right hand upholds me.
9 But those who 16seek my life to destroy it, Will go into the 17depths of the earth.
10 They will be 18delivered over to the power of the sword; They will be a 19prey for foxes.
11 But the 20king will rejoice in God; Everyone who 21swears by Him will glory, For the 22mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.
