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. Halleluia.
