From Psalm 63

O God, you are our God and we long for you; with all our being we desire you, and our spirits are thirsty for you - we want to sense you in our worship, we want to feel how mighty and glorious you are.

Because your love is better than life itself, we will praise you as long as life lasts: we will give thanks to you; we will raise our hands to you in prayer, we will feast upon you and be satisfied.

In the shadow of your wings we sing for joy; we cling to you, and you show us your salvation. O God, you are our God, and we long for you. Amen.
