|1||O God, you are my God; eagerly I seek you; *|
my soul thirsts for you, my flesh faints for you,
as in a barren and dry land where there is no water.
|2||Therefore I have gazed upon you in your holy place, *|
that I might behold your power and your glory.
|3||For your loving-kindness is better than life itself; *|
my lips shall give you praise.
|4||So will I bless you as long as I live *|
and lift up my hands in your Name.
|5||My soul is content, as with marrow and fatness, *|
and my mouth praises you with joyful lips,
|6||When I remember you upon my bed, *|
and meditate on you in the night watches.
|7||For you have been my helper, *|
and under the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.
|8||My soul clings to you; *|
your right hand holds me fast.
