Sermon Bible Passage

Psalm 63

A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.

You, God, are my God,     earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you,     my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land     where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary     and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life,     my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live,     and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;     with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you;     I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help,     I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you;     your right hand upholds me.

Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;     they will go down to the depths of the earth. They will be given over to the sword     and become food for jackals.

But the king will rejoice in God;     all who swear by God will glory in him,     while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
