Psalm 42...Longing

1:18 AM



As the deer pants for the water brooks,
so my soul pants for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God;
When shall I come and
appear before God?
My tears have been my
food day and night.
While they say to me all
day long, "Where is your God?"
These things I remember and I
pour out my soul within me.
For I used to go along with the throng
and lead them in procession
to the house of God,
With the voice of joy and thanksgiving,
a multitude keeping festival.

Why are you in despair,
O my soul?
And why have you
become disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him.
For the help of His presence.

O my God, my soul is in despair within me;
Therefore I remember You from
the land of the Jordan
And the peaks of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.
Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls;
All Your breakers and Your waves
have rolled over me.
The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime;
And His song will be with me in the night,
A prayer to the God of my life.

I will say to God my rock,
"Why have You forgotten me?
Why do I go mourning because of the
oppression of the enemy?"
As a shattering of my bones,
my adversaries revile me,
While they say to me all day long,
"Where is your God?"
Why are you in despair,
O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
