You Are My God

Psalm 63

A psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
O God, You are my God,
earnestly I seek You.
My soul thirsts for You.
My flesh longs for You
in a dry and weary land, where there is no water.
So, I looked for You in the Sanctuary,
to see Your power and Your glory.
Since Your lovingkindness is better than life,
my lips will praise You.
So I will bless You as long as I live.
In Your name I lift up my hands.[a]
My soul is satisfied as with fat and oil,
so my mouth praises You with joyful lips.

When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You through the night watches.
For You have been my help,
and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.
My soul clings to You—
Your right hand upholds me.
10 But those who seek my soul to destroy it
will go down to the depths of the earth.
11 They will be gutted by the sword,
and become a prey for jackals.
12 But the king will rejoice in God.
All who swear by Him will boast,
    when the mouth speaking lies is shut.
