O God, You are my God; early will I seek you; my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.
So have I looked for you in the sanctuary, to see Your power and your glory.
Because your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.
Thus will I bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips.
When I remember You upon my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.
Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
My soul follows close behind You; your right hand upholds me.
But those who seek my life to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
They shall fall by the sword; they shall be a portion for jackals.
But the ruler shall rejoice in God; everyone who swears by God shall glory;
but the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
Glory to God: Lover, Beloved and Love;
As it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever. Amen.
