Praying Psalm 63

Because your loving kindness
O Lord, is better than life,
My lips shall praise You with joy.
I will bless You while I live;
Yes, I will lift up my hands
In prayer to You in Your name.

I will seek You early, Lord,
While You are still to be found.
Within me lies a longing
Only You can satisfy.
Down deep my soul thirsts for God.
Nothing else can quench my thirst.

Pour Your rivers of water,
Flowing fresh, out from your throne
Upon me here, sweet Jesus.
On my bed, I think of You,
My heart gives thanks for Your care.
My help truly comes from You.
