O God, you are my God,
I seek You, my soul thirsts for You;
My flesh faints for You,
As in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon You in the sanctuary,
Beholding Your power and glory.
Because Your steadfast love is better than life,
My lips will praise You.
So I will bless You as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on Your Name.
My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast,
And my mouth praises You with joyful lips
When I think of You on my bed,
And meditate on You in the watches of the night;
For You have been my help,
And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.
My soul clings to You;
Your right hand upholds me. from Psalm 63
Today’s scripture reading comes from Isaiah 55:1-9.
