Praise God Who Satisfies

1 A Davidic psalm. When he was in the Wilderness of Judah.(A)
God, You are my God; I eagerly seek You.
I thirst for You;
my body faints for You
in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.(B)
2
So I gaze on You in the sanctuary
to see Your strength and Your glory.(C)
3
My lips will glorify You
because Your faithful love is better than life.(D)
4
So I will praise You as long as I live;
at Your name, I will lift up my hands.(E)
5
You satisfy me as with rich food;(a)(F)
my mouth will praise You with joyful lips.(G)
6
When I think of You as I lie on my bed,
I meditate on You during the night watches(H)
7
because You are my helper;(I)
I will rejoice in the shadow of Your wings.(J)
8
I follow close to You;
Your right hand holds on to me.(K)
9
But those who seek to destroy my life
will go into the depths of the earth.(L)
10
They will be given over to the power of the sword;(M)
they will become the jackals’ prey.
11
But the king will rejoice in God;(N)
all who swear by Him(b) will boast,
for the mouths of liars will be shut.(O)
