so my soul pantsh for you, my God.
When can I gok and meet with God?
3 My tearsl have been my food
day and night,
while people say to me all day long,
“Where is your God?”m
as I pour out my soul:n
how I used to go to the house of Godo
under the protection of the Mighty Oned
among the festive throng.r
5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?s
Why so disturbedt within me?
Put your hope in God,u
for I will yet praisev him,
therefore I will remembery you
from the land of the Jordan,z
the heights of Hermona—from Mount Mizar.
7 Deep calls to deepb
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.c
8 By day the Lord directs his love,d
a prayer to the God of my life.g
9 I say to God my Rock,h
“Why have you forgotteni me?
Why must I go about mourning,j
10 My bones suffer mortal agonym
as my foes tauntn me,
saying to me all day long,
“Where is your God?”o
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.p
