Eagerly I seek you
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.
Therefore I have gazed upon you in your holy place,
that I might behold your power and your glory.
For your loving-kindness is better than life itself;
my lips shall give you praise.
So will I bless you as long as I live
and lift up my hands in your Name.
My soul is content, as with marrow and fatness,
and my mouth praises you with joyful lips,
When I remember you upon my bed,
and meditate on you in the night watches.
For you have been my helper,
and under the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand holds me fast.
(Psalm 63:1-8 -- our Psalm at Morning Prayer)
