Psalm 63

O dear God, I love you!

I ache for you, my heart burns for you

and only you can quench this fire

only you can satisfy my desire

O sweet God, be on my lips

lightly brushing, then with the full force

Of my passion for your presence within me.

I lift up my hands to caress you

I can’t get enough of you. Forlorn in my bed,

I dream only of you, my desire for you keeps me awake into the night,

this longing for you is better than sleep.

Your presence hovers over me, in your shadow I moan with joy.

I feel your grasp, I grasp at you, I gasp for you, dearest Lover God…..
