1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul apants for You, O God. 2 My soul athirsts for God, for the bliving God; When shall I come and cappear before God? 3 My atears have been my food day and night, While they bsay to me all day long, "Where is your God?" 4 These things I remember and I apour out my soul within me. For I bused to go along with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God, With the voice of cjoy and thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival. 5 aWhy are you bin despair, O my soul? And why have you become cdisturbed within me? dHope in God, for I shall again praise Him For the ehelp of His presence. 6 O my God, my soul is in despair within me; Therefore I aremember You from bthe land of the Jordan And the peaks of cHermon, from Mount Mizar. 7 Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls; All Your abreakers and Your waves have rolled over me. 8 The Lord will acommand His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me bin the night, A prayer to cthe God of my life. 9 I will say to God amy rock, "Why have You forgotten me? Why do I go bmourning because of the coppression of the enemy?" 10 As a shattering of my bones, my adversaries revile me, While they asay to me all day long, "Where is your God?" 11 aWhy 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.
