Psalm 63

New International Version

1 You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.2 I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.5 I will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.6 On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.7 Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.8 I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.9 Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.10 They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.11 But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God will glory in him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
