As the deer pants for streams of water,
so we long for you, O God.
We thirst for you, the living God.
When can we come and stand in your presence?
Through each day,
the Lord pours his unfailing love upon us,
Through each night
we sing his songs,
praying to the God who gives us life.
Send out your light and your truth, O God.
Let them guide us to Your holy mountain,
to the place where you live.
Then we will go to the altar of God,
to God—the source of all our joy.
