BOOK II

Psalms 42–72

For the director of music. A maskil of the Sons of Korah.

1 abcAs the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
3 My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
4 These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty Onedwith shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng.
