Deus, Deus meus
1 O God, you are my God;*
early will I seek you.
2 My soul thirsts for you, my flesh also longs after you,*
in a barren and dry land where there is no water.
3 Thus I have looked upon you in your holy place,*
that I might behold your power and glory.
4 For your loving-kindness is better than life itself;*
my lips shall praise you.
5 As long as I live I will magnify you,*
and lift up my hands in your Name.
6 My soul shall be satisfied, as with marrow and fatness,*
when my mouth praises you with joyful lips.
7 When I remember you on my bed,*
I meditate on you in the watches of the night.
8 Because you have been my helper,*
therefore under the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.
9 My soul clings to you;*
your right hand has upheld me.
10 Those who seek to destroy my life*
shall go down into the earth.
11 Let them fall upon the edge of the sword,*
that they may be a portion for jackals.
12 But the King shall rejoice in God; all those who swear by him shall be commended,*
for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
