Psalm 63 – A Psalm of King David

O God, thou art my God,
I seek thee,
my soul thirsts for thee,
as in a dry and weary land
where no water is.

So I have looked upon thee
in the sanctuary,
beholding thy power and

Because thy steadfast love is
better than life,
my lips will praise thee.

So I will bless thee as long as
I live;
I will lift up my hands and
call on thy name.

Psalm 63 verses 1-4
