1)O GOD, You are my God;
Early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You
In a dry and thirsty land
Where there is no water.
2)So I have looked for You in the sanctuary ,
To see Your power and Your glory.
3)Because Your loving kindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise you.
4)Thus I will bless you while I live ;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5)My soul shall be satisfied as marrow and fatness.
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
6)When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
7)Because You have been my help,
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
8)My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me.
9)But those who seek my life, to destroy it,
Shall go into the the lower parts of the earth.
10)They shall fall by the sword;
They shall be a portion for jackals.
11)But the king shall rejoice in God;
Everyone who swears by Him shall glory;
But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
