A Poem from Psalm 63

You are my God, and I seek You.
My soul thirsts and flesh faints for You.
As in a world without water,
I look to You o'er all others.

Your steadfast love surpasses life –
My lips will praise and glorify.
And I will bless for all my days,
And lift my hands in Your great name.

When I remember on my bed,
I think of You with quiet breath –
How You have been my help so strong,
The shadow of Your wings my song.

I cling to Your upholding hand,
Despite the one who seeks my end.
I still rejoice in You, my Hope,
My confidence in You alone.
