O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you,1 my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.22
I have seen you in the sanctuary3 and beheld your power and your glory.43
Because your love is better than life,5 my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,6 and in your name I will lift up my hands.75
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;8 with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.97
Because you are my help,10 I sing in the shadow of your wings.118
My soul clings to you;12 your right hand upholds me.139
They who seek my life will be destroyed;14 they will go down to the depths of the earth.1510
They will be given over to the sword16 and become food for jackals.1711
But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God's name will praise him,18 while the mouths of liars will be silenced.19
