My Soul Thirsts for You
1O God, you are my God;
earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you;my flesh faints for
you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no
2So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding
your power and glory.
3Because your steadfast love is better than life, my
lips will praise you.
4So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I
will lift up my hands.
5My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich
food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful
6when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the
watches of the night;
7for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings
I will sing for joy.
8My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds
Praise the Lord for His faithfulness and steadfast love toward the children of men!
