  • Psalm 63
  • Deus, Deus meus


1 O God, you are my God; eagerly I seek you; *

my soul thirsts for you, my flesh faints for you,

as in a barren and dry land where there is no water.

2 Therefore I have gazed upon you in your holy place, *

that I might behold your power and your glory.

3 For your loving-kindness is better than life itself; *

my lips shall give you praise.

4 So will I bless you as long as I live *

and lift up my hands in your Name.

5 My soul is content, as with marrow and fatness, *

and my mouth praises you with joyful lips,

6 When I remember you upon my bed, *

and meditate on you in the night watches.

7 For you have been my helper, *

and under the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.

8 My soul clings to you; *

your right hand holds me fast.

9 May those who seek my life to destroy it *

go down into the depths of the earth;

10 Let them fall upon the edge of the sword, *

and let them be food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;

all those who swear by him will be glad; *

for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped. green leaf at end of canticle
