O God, You are my God and all I seek;

For You alone, my soul is parched with thirst;

For You, my God, my flesh is faint and weak,

As in a weary desert, arid, curst.

So in your sanctuary, I have sought

Your quenching glory, worthy of all praise;

Your steadfast love is sweeter than life’s draught,

So joyous for your name my hands I raise.

As fatty food Your steadfast love will sate

My soul in Your delicious words delights;

In bed, my heart on You will ruminate,

Remembering Your praise through restless nights.

For You, my God, have been my help throughout,

A well-spring of pure joy in driest drought.

Thirst for God (Psalm 63)
