Psalm 63:1-11

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. 63  O God, thou art my God; earnestly will I seek thee: My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee, In a dry and weary land, where no water is. 2  So have I looked upon thee in the sanctuary, To see thy power and thy glory. 3  Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise thee. 4  So will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. 5  My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips; 6  When I remember thee upon my bed, And meditate on thee in the night-watches. 7  For thou hast been my help, And in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. 8  My soul followeth hard after thee: Thy right hand upholdeth me. 9  But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, Shall go into the lower parts of the earth. 10  They shall be given over to the power of the sword: They shall be a portion for foxes. 11  But the king shall rejoice in God: Every one that sweareth by him shall glory; For the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
