longeth greatly after thee in a barren and

2 Thus I behold thee as in the Sanctuary,

when I behold thy power and thy glory.

3 For thy loving-kindness is better than life:

therefore my lips shall praise thee.

4 Thus will I magnify thee all my life, and lift up

mine hands in thy Name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied, as with marrow and fatness,

and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips,

6 When I remember thee on my bed, and when

I think upon thee in the night watches.

7 Because thou hast been mine helper, therefore

under the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

8 My soul cleaveth unto thee: for thy right hand

upholdeth me.

9 Therefore they that seek my soul to destroy it,

they shall go into the lowest parts of the earth.

10 They shall cast him down with the edge of the
