(A psalm by David when he was in the desert of Judah.)
God’s Love Means More than Life
63 You are my God. I worship you. In my heart, I long for you, as I would long for a stream in a scorching desert.
2 I have seen your power and your glory in the place of worship. 3 Your love means more than life to me, and I praise you. 4 As long as I live, I will pray to you. 5 I will sing joyful praises and be filled with excitement like a guest at a banquet.
6 I think about you before I go to sleep, and my thoughts turn to you during the night. 7 You have helped me, and I sing happy songs in the shadow of your wings. 8 I stay close to you, and your powerful arm supports me.
9 All who want to kill me will end up in the ground. 10 Swords will run them through, and wild dogs will eat them.
11 Because of you, our God, the king will celebrate with your faithful followers, but liars will be silent.
