This is a wonderfully uplifting song that acknowledges sadness, but comes back with encouragement and praise. The chorus, which blesses God, is repeated several times.

Lyrics

Thus I Will Bless Thee
Music by Greg Granoff
Lyrics adapted from Psalms 42 and 63

O God, Thou art my God
Early will I seek Thee;
 early will I seek Thee.

My flesh longs for Thee 
in a dry and thirsty land
My soul thirsts for Thee,
 my soul thirsts for Thee.

Yet the Lord will command 
His lovingkindness in the daytime

And in the night His song shall be with me
And my prayer unto the God of my life.
Thus I will bless Thee while I live
I will lift up my hands in Thy name.

Because Thy lovingkindness is better than life
My lips shall sing praise to Thee.
My soul thirsts for God
My tears have been my meat day and night
While they continuously say unto me,
“Where is thy God?”
Why art thou cast down, O my soul?

Why art thou disquieted within me?

Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him
Shall yet praise Him

Who is the health of my countenance
and my God.
Thus I will bless Thee while I live

I will lift up my hands in Thy name.

Because Thy lovingkindness is better than life
My lips shall sing praise to Thee.
