Psalm 63: In The Shadow Of Thy Wings Will I Rejoice - Poem by King David of Israel

1 O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;

2 To see thy power and thy glory,
so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise thee.

4 Thus will I bless thee while I live:
I will lift up my hands in thy name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness;
and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

6 When I remember thee upon my bed,
and meditate on thee in the night watches.

7 Because thou hast been my help,
therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it,
shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

10 They shall fall by the sword:
they shall be a portion for foxes.

11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
every one that sweareth by him shall glory:
but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
