Why Are You Cast Down, O My Soul?

Psalm 42 To the choirmaster. A Maskil of the Sons of Korah.
1) As a deer pants for flowing streams,
so pants my soul for you, O God.
2) My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God.
When shall I come and appear before God?
3) My tears have been my food
day and night,
while they say to me all the day long,
"Where is your God?"
4) These things I remember,
as I pour out my soul:
how I would go with the throng
and lead them in procession to the house of God
with glad shouts and songs of praise,
a multitude keeping festival.
5) Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation
6) and my God.
My soul is cast down within me;
therefore I remember you
from the land of Jordan and of Hermon,
from Mount Mizar.
7) Deep calls to deep
at the roar of your waterfalls;
all your breakers and your waves
have gone over me.
8) By day the Lord commands his steadfast love,
and at night his song is with me,
a prayer to the God of my life.
9) I say to God, my rock:
"Why have you forgotten me?
Why do I go mourning
because of the oppression of the enemy?"
10) As with a deadly wound in my bones,
my adversaries taunt me,
while they say to me all the day long,
"Where is your God?"
