 Trio: O God, I seek you… /  All: O God, I seek you…

As a dry and weary desert land, so my soul is thirsting for my God, and my flesh is faint for the God I seek, for Your love is

more to me than life.  / All: O God, I seek you…

I think of you when at night I rest, I reflect upon Your steadfast love. I will cling to You, Oh Lord my God, in the

shadow of Your wings I sing. / All: O God, I seek you…

I will bless Your name all the days I live, I will raise my hands and call on You, My joyful lips shall sing Your praise, You alone have filled my hungry soul.  / All: O God, I seek you…

Scripture

Daniel 6 (select verses) Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days. Then these men assembled and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God. And they went before the king, and spoke concerning the king’s decree: …“That Daniel, who is one of the captives from Judah, does not show due regard for you, O king, or for the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.” And the king … was greatly displeased with himself… …So the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.” Then a stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signets of his lords, that the purpose concerning Daniel might not be changed. … Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions. And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.” Now the king was exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he believed in his God.
