For the music director; a well-written song by the Korahites. As a deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God!
A psalm of David, written when he was in the Judean wilderness. O God, you are my God! I long for you! My soul thirsts for you, my flesh yearns for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
My flesh and my heart may grow weak, but God always protects my heart and gives me stability.
I desperately long to know your regulations at all times.
I spread my hands out to you in prayer; my soul thirsts for you in a parched land.
Song of Songs 2:4
The Beloved about Her Lover: He brought me into the banquet hall, and he looked at me lovingly.
Song of Songs 5:8
The Beloved to the Maidens: O maidens of Jerusalem, I command you -- If you find my beloved, what will you tell him? Tell him that I am lovesick!
O that I knew where I might find him, that I could come to his place of residence!
I look for you during the night, my spirit within me seeks you at dawn, for when your judgments come upon the earth, those who live in the world learn about justice.
If only you would tear apart the sky and come down! The mountains would tremble before you!
