In the shadow of your wings I rejoice.
1 O God, you are my God,
for you I long from early morning;
for you my soul is thirsting.
My body pines for you
like a dry, weary land without water. [Refrain]
2 So I gaze on you in the sanctuary
to see your strength and your glory.
For your love is better than life,
my lips will speak your praise. [Refrain]
3 So I will bless you all my life,
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul shall be filled as with a banquet,
my mouth shall praise you with joy. [Refrain]
4 On my bed I remember you.
On you I muse through the night,
for you have been my help;
in the shadow of your wings I rejoice. [Refrain]
5 My soul clings to you;
your right hand holds me fast.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen. [Refrain]
