Psalm 63. Deus, Deus meus.
From the Book of Divine Worship
- The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twelfth Day - Morning Prayer.
- O GOD, thou art my God; *
early will I seek thee.
- My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh also longeth after thee, *
in a barren and dry land where no water is.
- Thus have I looked for thee in the sanctuary, *
that I might behold thy power and glory.
- For thy loving-kindness is better than the life itself: *
my lips shall praise thee.
- As long as I live will I magnify thee in this manner, *
and lift up my hands in thy Name.
- My soul shall be satisfied, even as it were with marrow and fatness, *
when my mouth praiseth thee with joyful lips.
- Have I not remembered thee in my bed, *
and thought upon thee when I was waking?
- Because thou hast been my helper; *
therefore under the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
- My soul hangeth upon thee; *
thy right hand hath upholden me.
- These also that seek the hurt of my soul, *
they shall go under the earth.
- Let them fall upon the edge of the sword, *
that they may be a portion for foxes.
- 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.
