1O God, thou art my God, I seek thee,

my soul thirsts for thee;

my flesh faints for thee,

as in a dry and weary land where no water is.

2So I have looked upon thee in the sanctuary,

beholding thy power and glory.

3Because thy steadfast love is better than life,

my lips will praise thee.

4So I will bless thee as long as I live;

I will lift up my hands and call on thy name.

5My soul is feasted as with marrow and fat,

and my mouth praises thee with joyful lips,

6when I think of thee upon my bed,

and meditate on thee in the watches of the night;

7for thou hast been my help,

and in the shadow of thy wings I sing for joy.

8My soul clings to thee;

thy right hand upholds me.

9But those who seek to destroy my life

shall go down into the depths of the earth;

10they shall be given over to the power of the sword,

they shall be prey for jackals.

11But the king shall rejoice in God;

all who swear by him shall glory;

for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
