'As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants for Thee, O God. My soul thirsts for God, the Living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, while they say to me all day long, "Where is your God?" These things I remember, and I pour out my soul within me. I used to go along with the throng and lead them in processtion to the House of God, with the Voice of Jot and Thanksgiving a multitude keeping Festival. Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, for the Help of His Presence. O my God, my soul is in despair within me; therefore I remember Thee from the land of the Jordan, and the peaks of Hermon, from Mount Mizar. Deep calls to Deep at the sound of Thy Waterfalls; All Thy Waves and Breakers have rolled over me. The Lord will command His Lovingkindess in the daytime; His Song will be with me in the night, a Prayer to the God of my life. I will say to God my Rock, "Why hast Thou forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?" As a shattering of my bones, my adversarties revile me, while they say to me all day long, "Where is your God?" Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him, the Help of my countenance, and my God.'
