1 As the hart pants After the streams of water, So my soul pants For You, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, For the living God. When will I come and appear Before God?
3 My tears have been my food Day and night, While they say to me all day long, Where is your God?
4 These things I remember, And I pour out my soul within me: That I passed through with the throng; I led them to the house of God With the voice of a joyous shout and praise, The festal multitude.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I will yet praise Him For the salvation of His countenance.
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me; Therefore I remember You From the land of the Jordan and the Hermons, From Mount Mizar.
7 Deep calls unto deep At the sound of Your water spouts; All Your waves and Your billows Pass over me.
8 By day Jehovah commands His lovingkindness, And by night His song is with me, A prayer to the God of my life.
9 I say to God my rock, Why have You forgotten me? Why do I go mourning Because of the oppression of the enemy?
10 As with a shattering in my bones, My adversaries reproach me, While they say to me all day long, Where is your God?
11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I will yet praise Him, The salvation of my countenance and my God.
