PSALM 63[Y] Ardent Longing for God 63 1A psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. I 2O God, you are my God— it is you I seek! For you my body yearns; for you my soul thirsts, In a land parched, lifeless, and without water. 3I look to you in the sanctuary to see your power and glory. 4For your love is better than life;[Z] my lips shall ever praise you! II 5I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands, calling on your name. 6My soul shall be sated as with choice food, with joyous lips my mouth shall praise you! 7I think of you upon my bed, I remember you through the watches of the night 8You indeed are my savior, and in the shadow of your wings I shout for joy. 9My soul clings fast to you; your right hand upholds me. III 10But those who seek my life will come to ruin; they shall go down to the depths of the netherworld! 11Those who would hand over my life to the sword shall become the prey of jackals! 12But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by the Lord shall exult,[A] but the mouths of liars will be shut!
