Passages for Sunday May 13, 2018

Ad - Remain in Me

 

Psalm 63:1-8 NLT
1 O God, You are my God;
I earnestly search for You.
My soul thirsts for You;
my whole body longs for You
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.
2 I have seen You in Your sanctuary
and gazed upon Your power and glory.
3 Your unfailing love is better than life itself;
how I praise You!
4 I will praise You as long as I live,
lifting up my hands to You in prayer.
5 You satisfy me more than the richest feast.
I will praise You with songs of joy.

6 I lie awake thinking of You,
meditating on You through the night.
7 Because You are my Helper,
I sing for joy in the shadow of Your wings.
8 I cling to You;
Your strong right hand holds me securely.
