(PSALMS 42 & 43)

My soul thirsts for the living God.

When shall I come and meet with Him?

How I would go to the house of God

With shouts of joy and songs of praise!


Why are you cast down, O my soul,

And why are you in turmoil within?

Hope in God for I shall praise Him,

My salvation and my God.

By day the Lord pours His steadfast love.

At night His song is always near.

I say to God, "Why do I go mourning?

Am I alone afar from You?"


Send out Your light and your truth O God.

O let them lead me near to You.

Then I will go to the place of God, 

to God my all-exceeding joy!
