O God, thou art my God
Language: English  after the Latin 
O God, thou art my God:
early will I seek thee.
My soul thirsteth for thee;
my flesh also longeth after thee
in a barren and dry land where no water is.
Thus have I look'd for thee in holiness
that I might behold thy power and glory.
For thy loving kindness is better than life itself:
my lips shall praise thee.
As long as I live will I magnify thee on this manner,
and lift up my hands in thy name.
Because thou hast been my helper,
therefore under the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
