Sicut Cervus

The unofficial anthem of my alma mater--because we all have to sing it freshmen (and usually sophomore) year and pretty nearly unanimously fall in love with/memorize it in the process.

Psalm 42
Sicut cervus desiderat ad fontes aquarum, ita desiderat anima mea ad te, Deus.
Like as the hart desireth the water-brooks: so longeth my soul after thee, O God.
