Thirsting for God

 
Play
Saturday of week 8 in Ordinary Time, based on Psalm 63:2-6

O God, you are my God, I seek you,
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on your name.
 
   My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast,
and my mouth praises you with joyful lips
