Psalms 42:1

Longing for God

1

For the choir director. A Maskil of the sons of Korah.

1 As a deer longs for streams of water, so I long for You, God.

Psalms 42:1 In-Context

1 As a deer longs for streams of water, so I long for You, God.
2 I thirst for God, the living God. When can I come and appear before God?
3 My tears have been my food day and night, while all day long people say to me, "Where is your God?"
4 I remember this as I pour out my heart: how I walked with many, leading the festive procession to the house of God, with joyful and thankful shouts.
5 Why am I so depressed? Why this turmoil within me? Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him, my Savior and my God.
