Psalm 63. Deus, Deus meus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twelfth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. O GOD, thou art my God; *
    early will I seek thee.
  2. My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh also longeth after thee, *
    in a barren and dry land where no water is.
  3. Thus have I looked for thee in the sanctuary, *
    that I might behold thy power and glory.
  4. For thy loving-kindness is better than the life itself: *
    my lips shall praise thee.
  5. As long as I live will I magnify thee in this manner, *
    and lift up my hands in thy Name.
  6. My soul shall be satisfied, even as it were with marrow and fatness, *
    when my mouth praiseth thee with joyful lips.
  7. Have I not remembered thee in my bed, *
    and thought upon thee when I was waking?
  8. Because thou hast been my helper; *
    therefore under the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
  9. My soul hangeth upon thee; *
    thy right hand hath upholden me.
  10. These also that seek the hurt of my soul, *
    they shall go under the earth.
  11. Let them fall upon the edge of the sword, *
    that they may be a portion for foxes.
  12. But the King shall rejoice in God; all they also that swear by him shall be commended; *
    for the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
