2 O God, you are my God— it is you I seek!For you my body yearns; for you my soul thirsts,In a land parched, lifeless, and without water.(A)
3 I look to you in the sanctuary to see your power and glory.4 For your love is better than life;[a] my lips shall ever praise you!
5 I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands, calling on your name.6 My soul shall be sated as with choice food, with joyous lips my mouth shall praise you!
8 You indeed are my savior, and in the shadow of your wings I shout for joy.(A)9 My soul clings fast to you; your right hand upholds me.
