To the choirmaster. A Maskil of the Sons of Korah.

V1
1Like a deer longs for streams, so my soul longs for you,
God; 2my soul thirsts for God, for the God who’s alive.
O when shall I come and appear before God?

3My tears are my food both by day and by night,
While they say to me all the day, “Where is your God?”
4These things I remember and pour out my soul:

Pre-Chorus 1
When I went with the throng I would lead them along
To God’s house with glad shouts and a thanksgiving song,
A multitude keeping festival!

CH
5Why are you cast down, O my soul?
Why are you troubled within me?
Hope in God; for I again shall praise him,
My salvation and my God.

V2
6My soul is cast down in me, so I’ll recall
You from Jordan and Hermon’s land, from Mizar’s Hill.
7Deep calls to deep at your waterfalls’ roar.

All your breaking waves crashing up over me pass.
8The LORD daily commands his love; nightly his song
Is with me, as a prayer to the God of my life.

Pre-Chorus 2
9I ask God, my rock: “Why forget me? Oh why do
I grieve in oppression from enemies?”
10They break my bones, all day taunt me, “Where’s your God?”

CH
11Why are you cast down, O my soul?
Why are you troubled within me?
Hope in God; for I again shall praise him,
My salvation and my God.

V3
43:1O vindicate me, God! Contend for my cause
Against faithless people, and liberate me
From anyone who is unjust or tells lies!

2For you are my God and my refuge. O why
Reject me? Why am I oppressed by my foes
I am grieving, 3Oh send out your light and your truth!

Pre-Chorus 3
Let them lead me and bring me to your holy hill,
To your home, 4to your altar, to God my great joy!
And on a lyre I’ll praise you, God, my God!

CH
5Why are you cast down, O my soul?
Why are you troubled within me?
Hope in God; for I again shall praise him,
My salvation and my God.
