God you are my God,
I seek your face at dawn,
my soul is thirsting for you,
my body is pining for you,
parched ground, waterless and dry.
In the Sanctuary I long to adore you,
To behold your glory and power.
Your love is better than life,
my lips will proclaim your praise,
all my life I would bless you,
my hands lifted up in prayer,
my soul feasting till satisfied,
joy on my lips, praise on my mouth.
When I think of you as I sleep,
I remember you all through the night,
you have been my help,
I rejoice under the shadow of your wings;
My soul finds rest at your side,
Your right hand is holding me safe.
– Psalm 63. Taize translation.
