Psalm 42. Quemadmodum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Eighth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. LIKE as the hart desireth the water-brooks, *
    so longeth my soul after thee, O God.
  2. My soul is athirst for God, yea, even for the living God: *
    when shall I come to appear before the presence of God?
  3. My tears have been my meat day and night, *
    while they daily say unto me, Where is now thy God?
  4. Now when I think thereupon, I pour out my heart by myself; *
    for I went with the multitude, and brought them forth into the house of God;
  5. In the voice of praise and thanksgiving, *
    among such as keep holy-day.
  6. Why art thou so full of heaviness, O my soul? *
    and why art thou so disquieted within me?
  7. O put thy trust in God; *
    for I will yet thank him, which is the help of my countenance, and my God.
  8. My soul is vexed within me; *
    therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, from Hermon and the little hill.
  9. One deep calleth another, because of the noise of thy waterfloods; *
    all thy waves and storms are gone over me.
  10. The Lord will grant his loving-kindness in the daytime; *
    and in the night season will I sing of him, and make my prayer unto the God of my life.
  11. I will say unto the God of my strength, Why hast thou forgotten me? *
    why go I thus heavily, while the enemy oppresseth me?
  12. My bones are smitten asunder as with a sword, *
    while mine enemies that trouble me cast me in the teeth;
  13. Namely, while they say daily unto me, *
    Where is now thy God?
  14. Why art thou so vexed, O my soul? *
    and why art thou so disquieted within me?
  15. O put thy trust in God; *
    for I will yet thank him, which is the help of my countenance, and my God.
