Song 63
A Psalm of David. In the Wilderness of Judah
1Yea God O God my God Thou art
1Seek Thee I shall with all my heart
1My soul doth thirst my flesh belong
1To Thee this desert land be wrong

2So to the consecrated place
2I turned to look on Thee
2To contemplate Thy power and grace
2With me they do agree

3As moves reproof to life in strength
3To speak Thy praises grand
4I'm moved to kneel and pray at length
4Thy name with outstretched hand

5To me the fat of marrow bring
5For then my soul will see
5How satisfied my mouth will sing
5Of joyous praise to Thee

6On watch for Thee in thought at night
6I prayed upon my wing
7As shaded Thine own wings my light
7My Shade to Thee I sing

8My soul doth follow close to Thee
8Thy right hand doth surround
9While those who seek the soul of me
9Shall flounder underground

10The power of thirst doth gobble up
10Who take the sword to drink its cup
10Their bodies' wasted meat
10Becomes what foxes eat

11The king hath sung his God hath praised
11As married glorious heavens raised
11While men of faith an oath by sevens swore
11The food of lies doth feed untruth no more
