Like the deer that yearns for running streams,
so my soul is yearning for you, my God.

Response:
Like the deer that longs for running streams,
so my soul longs for you my God.

1 My soul is thirsting for God,
the God of my life;
When can I enter and see
the face of God? [Response]

2 These things will I remember
as I pour out my soul:
how I would lead the rejoicing crowd
into the house of God,
amid cries of gladness and thanksgiving,
the throng wild with joy. [Response]

3 O send forth your light and your truth;
let these be my guide.
Let them bring me to your holy mountain
to the place where you dwell. [Response]

4 And I will come to your altar, O God,
the God of my joy.
My redeemer, I will thank you on the harp,
O God, my God. [Response]
