I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
where this is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory.
Your unfailing love is better to me than life itself;
how I praise you!
I will honor you as long as I live,
lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
You satisfy me more than the richest of foods.
I will praise you with songs of joy...
Amen and amen.
*I have to credit King David of ancient Israel with these words...they surely are not mine.
