Lent: Third Sunday in Lent

Psalm

Longing for God

1O God, you are my God,

and I long for you.

My whole being desires you;

like a dry, worn-out, and waterless land,

my soul is thirsty for you.

2Let me see you in the sanctuary;

let me see how mighty and glorious you are.

3Your constant love is better than life itself,

and so I will praise you.

4I will give you thanks as long as I live;

I will raise my hands to you in prayer.

5My soul will feast and be satisfied,

and I will sing glad songs of praise to you.

6As I lie in bed, I remember you;

all night long I think of you,

7because you have always been my help.

In the shadow of your wings I sing for joy.

8I cling to you,

and your hand keeps me safe.
