Joy in the Fellowship of God

A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
  1O God, You are my God;
   Early will I seek You;
   My soul thirsts for You;
   My flesh longs for You
   In a dry and thirsty land
   Where there is no water.
   2So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
   To see Your power and Your glory.
  3Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
   My lips shall praise You.
   4Thus I will bless You while I live;
   I will lift up my hands in Your name.
   5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
   And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
  6When I remember You on my bed,
   I meditate on You in the night watches.
   7Because You have been my help,
   Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
   8My soul follows close behind You;
   Your right hand upholds me.
  9But those who seek my life, to destroy it,
   Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
   10They shall fall by the sword;
   They shall be a portion for jackals.
  11But the king shall rejoice in God;
   Everyone who swears by Him shall glory;
   But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
