An Evening Prayer

O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and exhausted land
where there is no water.

I have seen you in your sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips I will praise you.

On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me!

My soul finds rest in you, O God!

AMEN.
