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.
