Just like a deer that craves streams of water, my whole being craves you, God. 

My whole being thirsts for God, for the living God. When will I come and see God’s face?

My tears have been my food both day and night, as people constantly questioned me, “Where’s your God now?” 

But I remember these things as I bare my soul: how I made my way to the mighty one’s abode, to God’s own house, with joyous shouts and thanksgiving songs—a huge crowd celebrating the festival!

Why, I ask myself, are you so depressed?  Why are you so upset inside?  Hope in God!  Because I will again give him thanks, my saving presence and my God. 

My whole being is depressed.  That’s why I remember you from the land of Jordan and Hermon, from Mount Mizar. 

Deep called to deep at the noise of your waterfalls; all your massive waves surged over me. 

By day the LORD commands his faithful love; by night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life. 

I will say to God, my solid rock, “Why have you forgotten me?  Why do I have to walk around, sad, oppressed by enemies?” 

With my bones crushed, my foes make fun of me, constantly questioning me: “Where’s your God now?” 

Why, I ask myself, are you so depressed?  Why are you so upset inside?  Hope in God!  Because I will again give him thanks, my saving presence and my God.

-Psalm 42 (Common English Bible)
