Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You.
Your unfailing love is better to me than life itself; how I praise you!
In your generous love I am really living at last! My lips brim praises like fountains.
Because your mercy is better than life, my lips will give you praise.
Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.
Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You.

1 tn This line is understood as giving the basis for the praise promised in the following line. Another option is to take the Hebrew particle כִּי (ki) as asseverative/emphasizing, “Indeed, your loyal love is better” (cf. NEB, which leaves the particle untranslated).
