Psalm 63

Psalms: 63

Longing for God.  Psalm 63(v62)

A Psalm of David, when he was in the Wilderness of Judah.

1O God, thou art my God, I seek thee, my soul thirsts for thee;
my flesh faints for thee, as in a dry and weary land where no water is.
2So I have looked upon thee in the sanctuary,
beholding thy power and glory.
3Because thy steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise thee.
4So I will bless thee as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on thy name.

5My soul is feasted as with marrow and fat,
and my mouth praises thee with joyful lips,
6when I think of thee upon my bed,
and meditate on thee in the watches of the night;
7for thou hast been my help,
and in the shadow of thy wings I sing for joy.
8My soul clings to thee;
thy right hand upholds me.

9But those who seek to destroy my life
shall go down into the depths of the earth;
10they shall be given over to the power of the sword,
they shall be prey for jackals.
11But the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swear by him shall glory;
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
