1
¶ AS the hart pants after the water brook so pants my soul after thee, O LORD.
2
My soul thirsts after thee, O living God;
when shall I come to see thy face?
3
My tears have been my bread day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is your God?
4
When I remember these things, my soul is agitated;
therefore I will enter thy mighty citadel, even to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with the many people who rejoice.
5
Why are you troubled, O my soul?
and why are you bewildered?
Trust in God;
for I shall yet praise him, the Saviour of my honour and my God.
6
¶ My soul is troubled within me;
therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, from the mount of Hermon and from the hill.
7
Deep calls to deep at the sound of thy waterfalls: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
8
Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer to the living God.
9
I will say to God, Why hast thou forsaken me?
why go I mourning because of the oppression of my enemies?
10
When my bones are broken, mine enemies reproach me;
while they say daily unto me, Where is your God?
11
Why are you disturbed, O my soul?
and why are you bewildered?
Hope in God;
for I shall yet praise him, the Saviour of my honor and my God.
