Psalm 63

1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth
for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no
water is;

2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the
sanctuary.

3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall
praise thee.

4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in
thy name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my
mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the
night watches.

7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy
wings will I rejoice.

8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the
lower parts of the earth.

10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.

11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him
shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

Just a side note: this was one of the scriptures read at my wedding. It has always been a favorite verse of mine. When I was in high school a well-know Christian artist wrote a song using this Psalm. It always brought great peace to me whenever I would sing the words (still does).
