Psalm 42

2 Like the deer that yearns

 for running streams,

 so my soul is yearning

 for you, my God.

3 My soul is thirsting for God,

 the living God;

 when can I enter and appear

 before the face of God?

4 My tears have become my bread,

 by day, by night,

 as they say to me all the day long,

 “Where is your God?”

5 These things will I remember

 as I pour out my soul:

 for I would go to the place

 of your wondrous tent,

 all the way to the house of God,

 amid cries of gladness and thanksgiving,

 the throng keeping joyful festival.

6 Why are you cast down, my soul;

 why groan within me?

 Hope in God; I will praise him yet again,

 my saving presence and my God.

7 My soul is cast down within me,

 therefore I remember you

 from the land of Jordan and Mount Hermon,

 from the Hill of Mizar.

8 Deep is calling on deep,

 in the roar of your torrents;

 your billows and all your waves

 swept over me.

9 By day the LORD decrees

 his merciful love;

 by night his song is with me,

 prayer to the God of my life.

10 I will say to God, my rock,

 “Why have you forgotten me?

 Why do I go mourning

 oppressed by the foe?”

11 With a deadly wound in my bones,

 my enemies revile me,

 saying to me all the day long,

 “Where is your God?”

12 Why are you cast down, my soul;

 why groan within me?

 Hope in God; I will praise him yet again,

 my saving presence and my God.
