Psalmus 62 (63)
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): FRE
1  [Psalmus David, cum esset in deserto Idumææ.]
2  Deus, Deus meus, ad te de luce vigilo.
   Sitivit in te anima mea; quam multipliciter tibi caro mea!
3  In terra deserta, et invia, et inaquosa,
   sic in sancto apparui tibi, 
   ut viderem virtutem tuam et gloriam tuam.
4  Quoniam melior est misericordia tua super vitas,
   labia mea laudabunt te.
5  Sic benedicam te in vita mea,
   et in nomine tuo levabo manus meas.
6  Sicut adipe et pinguedine repleatur anima mea,
   et labiis exsultationis laudabit os meum.
7  Si memor fui tui super stratum meum,
   in matutinis meditabor in te.
8  Quia fuisti adjutor meus,
   et in velamento alarum tuarum exsultabo.
9  Adhæsit anima mea post te;
   me suscepit dextera tua.
10 Ipsi vero in vanum quæsierunt animam meam:
   introibunt in inferiora terræ;
11 tradentur in manus gladii:
   partes vulpium erunt.
12 Rex vero lætabitur in Deo;
   laudabuntur omnes qui jurant in eo:
   quia obstructum est os loquentium iniqua.

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 longeth for thee 
in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
To see thy power and thy glory, 
so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, 
my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live: 
I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; 
and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
When I remember thee upon my bed, 
and meditate on thee in the night watches.
Because thou hast been my help, 
therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
My soul followeth hard after thee: 
thy right hand upholdeth me.
But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, 
shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
They shall fall by the sword: 
they shall be a portion [for]1 foxes.
But the king shall rejoice in God; 
every one that sweareth by him shall glory: 
but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
