O God, You are my God, earnestly I seek You; my soul thirsts for You, my body longs for You, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and Your glory. Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You. I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods! (Ps. 63:1-5).

Help me, then, not to grieve, for Your joy is my strength (Neh. 8:10). If I call to You, You will answer me and tell me great and un-searchable things I do not know (Jer. 33:3).
