My Soul Thirsts for YouA Psalm of David.143:1 Hear my prayer, O Lord;give ear to my pleas for mercy!In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!
2 Enter not into judgment with your servant,for no one living is righteous before you.
3 For the enemy has pursued my soul;he has crushed my life to the ground;he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.
4 Therefore my spirit faints within me;my heart within me is appalled.
5 I remember the days of old;I meditate on all that you have done;I ponder the work of your hands.
6 I stretch out my hands to you;my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah
7 Answer me quickly, O Lord!My spirit fails!Hide not your face from me,lest I be like those who go down to the pit.
8 Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,for in you I trust.Make me know the way I should go,for to you I lift up my soul.
9 Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord!I have fled to you for refuge.
10 Teach me to do your will,for you are my God!Let your good Spirit lead meon level ground!
