Psalm 63Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

Comfort and Assurance in God’s Presence

A Psalm of David, when he was in the Wilderness of Judah.

63 O God, thou art my God, I seek thee,
    my soul thirsts for thee;
my flesh faints for thee,
    as in a dry and weary land where no water is.
So I have looked upon thee in the sanctuary,
    beholding thy power and glory.
Because thy steadfast love is better than life,
    my lips will praise thee.
So I will bless thee as long as I live;
    I will lift up my hands and call on thy name.

My soul is feasted as with marrow and fat,
    and my mouth praises thee with joyful lips,
when I think of thee upon my bed,
    and meditate on thee in the watches of the night;
for thou hast been my help,
    and in the shadow of thy wings I sing for joy.
My soul clings to thee;
    thy right hand upholds me.

But those who seek to destroy my life
    shall go down into the depths of the earth;
10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword,
    they shall be prey for jackals.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
    all who swear by him shall glory;
    for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
