When I remembered thee upon my bed in the watches, I will meditate upon thee.
The day Jehovah will command his mercy, and in the night the song with me; the prayer to the God of my life.
Thou didst hold mine eyes watching: I was moved, and I will not speak.
I remembered thy name in the night, O Jehovah, and I will watch thy law.
I anticipated the dawn, and I will cry: I hoped for thy words
And to me how were thy thoughts precious, O God! how were their heads strong!
The godly ones shall triumph in glory; they shall rejoice upon their bed
Upon my bed in the night I sought him whom my soul loved: I sought him, and I found him not
I slept and my heart waked: the voice of my beloved knocks at the door; Open to me, my sister, my friend, my dove, my perfect one: my head was filled with dew, my locks with the drops of the night
Arise, cry aloud in the night: at the head of the watches pour out thy heart as water before the face of Jehovah: lift up thy hands to him for the soul of thy young children fainting with hunger in the head of all the streets.
