WHY ARE YOU CAST DOWN?
(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!
