PSALM 63:1-8
METER:  77 77 77
This is the meter of the hymn "For the Beauty of the Earth"

1.  God, my God, I long for you,
    My whole be-ing thirsts for you.
    Like dry, wea-ry, ar-id land
    My soul has de-sire for you.
    I look in a ho-ly place
    So I'll see your glo-rious might.
2.  Your love's more than life to me,
    And so I will praise your name.
    God, I'll bless you all my life;
    I will raise my hands in prayer.
    I'm filled as though with fine foods;
    I will sing your praise with joy.
3.  I think of you on my bed,
    Med-i-tat-ing through the night,
    For you've al-ways been my help;
    'Neath your wings I shall re-joice.
    I will cleave my-self to you,
    For your right hand keeps me safe.
