1 O God, you are my God:
eagerly will I seek you.
2 My soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you:
as a dry and thirsty land where no water is.
3 So it was when I beheld you in the sanctuary:
and saw your power and your glory.
4 For your unchanging goodness is better than life:
therefore my lips shall praise you.
5 And so I will bless you as long as I live:
and in your name will I lift my hands on high.
6 My longing shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness:
my mouth shall praise you with exultant lips.
7 When I remember you upon my bed:
when I meditate upon you in the night watches,
8 How you have been my helper:
then I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings,
9 Then my soul clings to you:
and your right hand upholds me.
