CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
With desire I have desired - This is a Hebrew form of expression, and means "I have greatly desired." The reasons why he desired this we may suppose to have been:

All his sufferings were the expression of love to his people, and he was desirous of testifying "always" his regard for their comfort and welfare.
Before I suffer - Before I die.
