CEBCommon English Bible
1God! My God! It’s you—
I search for you!
My whole being#Or my soul; also in 63:5, 8 thirsts for you!
My body desires you
in a dry and tired land,
no water anywhere.
2Yes, I’ve seen you in the sanctuary;
I’ve seen your power and glory.
3My lips praise you
because your faithful love
is better than life itself!
4So I will bless you as long as I’m alive;
I will lift up my hands in your name.
5I’m fully satisfied—
as with a rich dinner.
My mouth speaks praise with joy on my lips—
6whenever I ponder you on my bed,
whenever I meditate on you
in the middle of the night—
7because you’ve been a help to me and I shout for joy in the protection of your wings.
8My whole being clings to you;
your strong hand upholds me.
