Psalm 63 (WEBP)

[1] God, you are my God. I will earnestly seek you. My soul thirsts for you. My flesh longs for you, in a dry and weary land, where there is no water.
[2] So I have seen you in the sanctuary, watching your power and your glory.
[3] Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.
[4] So I will bless you while I live. I will lift up my hands in your name.
[5] My soul shall be satisfied as with the richest food. My mouth shall praise you with joyful lips,
[6] when I remember you on my bed, and think about you in the night watches.
[7] For you have been my help. I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings.
[8] My soul stays close to you. Your right hand holds me up.
[9] But those who seek my soul to destroy it shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
[10] They shall be given over to the power of the sword. They shall be jackal food.
[11] But the king shall rejoice in God. Everyone who swears by him will praise him, for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be silenced.

[1] O God, Thou art my God, earnestly do I seek Thee, Thirsted for Thee hath my soul, Longed for Thee hath my flesh, In a land dry and weary, without waters.
[2] So in the sanctuary I have seen Thee, To behold Thy strength and Thine honour.
[3] Because better is Thy kindness than life, My lips do praise Thee.
[4] So I bless Thee in my life, in Thy name I lift up my hands.
[5] As with milk and fatness is my soul satisfied, And with singing lips doth my mouth praise.
[6] If I have remembered Thee on my couch, In the watches-I meditate on Thee.
[7] For Thou hast been a help to me, And in the shadow of Thy wings I sing.
[8] Cleaved hath my soul after Thee, On me hath Thy right hand taken hold.
