1. O God thou art my gracious God,
I'll early seek thy face;
My soul doth thirst, my flesh doth long,
For thy refreshing grace;
As in a dry, and thirsty land,
Where waters rare have been;
2. Thy power and glory, to behold
As in thy courts I've seen.
3. Because thy love doth life excel,
My lips shall speak thy praise.
4. I'll bless thee, while I live; my hands,
To thee, adoring raise.
5. Then shall my soul be satisfied,
As with rich dainties fed;
My mouth her joyful lips employ,
Thy praises wide to spread.
6. Mean time, while on my bed I lie,
I will remember thee;
My thoughts, in watches of the night,
On thee shall musing be.
7. Since thou hast been my help, with joy,
I'll to thy Courts resort.
8. My soul pursues hard after thee;
Thy power doth me support.
9. But those shall to the abyss go down
That seek my life to slay:
10. Their carcasses, fallen by the sword,
Shall be the foxes prey.
11. Yet shall the king in God rejoice,
And all that by him swear
Shall glory; but their mouths be stopped.
That full of lying are.
