Psalm 63 (Better Than Life)

Below is the song Psalm 63 (Better Than Life) by Shane & Shane:

Lyrics:

O God, You’re my God, I seek You
O my soul it longs for You
my flesh faints for You in this land
this dry land where there is no drink
I’ve looked upon You in this place
beholding your power and glory, Lord

Because Your love is better than life is
I will praise You as long as I’m alive
and in the face of precious Jesus
O my soul will be satisfied

O God, You’re my God, I seek You
O my soul, it longs for You
my flesh faints for You in this land
this dry land where there is no drink
I’ve looked upon You in this place
beholding your power and glory, Lord

You have been my help
in the shadow of Your wings
I’ll sing for joy

You have been my help
in the shadow of Your wings
I’ll sing
I’ll sing

Because Your love is better than life is
I will praise You as long as I’m alive
and in the face of precious Jesus
O my soul will be satisfied


Scripture:

Psalm 63
English Standard Version (ESV)

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

1 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
3 Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
4 So I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
6 when I remember you upon my bed,
and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
7 for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
8 My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
9 But those who seek to destroy my life
shall go down into the depths of the earth;
10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword;
they shall be a portion for jackals.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swear by him shall exult,
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
