Psalm of the Day – November 20, 2021 (Psalm 63)

1   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. 
2   So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, 
          beholding your power and glory. 
3   Because your steadfast love is better than life, 
          my lips will praise you. 
4   So I will bless you as long as I live; 
          I will lift up my hands and call on your name.

5   My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast, 
          and my mouth praises you with joyful lips 
6   when I think of you on my bed, 
          and meditate on you in the watches of the night; 
7   for you have been my help, 
          and in the shadow of your wings I sing for joy. 
8   My soul clings to you; 
          your right hand upholds me.

9 But those who seek to destroy my life
shall go down into the depths of the earth;
10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword,
they shall be prey for jackals.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swear by him shall exult,
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
