Psalm 63

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.
10 Those that seek my life are marked for destruction:
    they shall go down to the deep places of the earth.
11 They shall be delivered to the sword:
    they shall be a portion for jackals.
12 The king will rejoice in God, and all who take oaths on his name shall glory:
    but the mouths of liars shall be stopped.
