Psalm 63. Deus, Deus meus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twelfth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. O God, you are my God; eagerly I seek you; *
    my soul thirsts for you, my flesh faints for you, as in a barren and dry land where there is no water.
  2. Therefore I have gazed upon you in your holy place, *
    that I might behold your power and your glory.
  3. For your loving-kindness is better than life itself; *
    my lips shall give you praise.
  4. So will I bless you as long as I live *
    and lift up my hands in your Name.
  5. My soul is content, as with marrow and fatness, *
    and my mouth praises you with joyful lips,
  6. When I remember you upon my bed, *
    and meditate on you in the night watches.
  7. For you have been my helper, *
    and under the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.
  8. My soul clings to you; *
    your right hand holds me fast.
  9. May those who seek my life to destroy it *
    go down into the depths of the earth;
  10. Let them fall upon the edge of the sword, *
    and let them be food for jackals.
  11. But the king will rejoice in God; all those who swear by him will be glad; *
    for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
