Psalm 63:1–8

O God, you are my God;
   I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
   my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
   where there is no water.
I have seen you in your sanctuary
   and gazed upon your power and glory.
Your unfailing love is better than life itself;
   how I praise you!
I will praise you as long as I live,
   lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
You satisfy me more than the richest feast.
   I will praise you with songs of joy.
I lie awake thinking of you,
   meditating on you through the night.
Because you are my helper,
   I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
   your strong right hand holds me securely. (Psalm 63:1–8 NLT)
