Thirsting for the Living God (Psalm 42)

Thirsting for the living God,
Seeking favor in His sight,
Still I feed upon my tears
While I sorrow day and night.

Why are you cast down, my soul?
Why are you disturbed within?
Hope in God, whose help remains;
I will praise Him once again.

In my grief, I call to mind
How I worshiped with the throng,
Coming to the house of God,
Joining there in joyful song.


Though I drown beneath His waves,
Even from the deep, I see:
Daily He commands His love;
Nightly is His song with me.
