My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord, My God.
Oh God, you are my God whom I seek. For you my flesh pines and my soul thirsts like the earth, parched, lifeless without water.
Thus I have gazed toward you in the sanctuary to see your power and your glory, for your kindness is a greater good than life; my lips shall glorify you.
Thus will I bless you while I live; lifting up my hands, I will call upon your name. As with the riches of a banquet shall my soul be satisfied, and with exultant lips my mouth shall praise you.
You are my help, and in the shadow of your wings I shout for joy. My soul clings fast to you; your right hand upholds me.
