Why do some Jews write "G-d" instead of "God"?

ANSWER BY:
Rabbi Victor S. Appell

Writing "G-d" instead of God is a fairly recent custom in America. Many believe this to be a sign of respect, ...
Akin to Christians insisting that God should be address as "thee" as a sign of respect. Of course, all Yorkshire folk know that it isn't, as in "don't thee thou my, thee thou thyself and see how thee likes it". Because "thee" is the equivalent of German "du" and French "tu".

So the song based on Psalm 42, which I learned as a young lad:
As the deer pants for the water
So my soul longs after you
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship you

You alone are my strength, my shield
To you alone will my spirit yield
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship you

Has been transformed into this monstrosity by some pious git.

As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after thee
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship thee

You alone are my strength, my shield
To you alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship thee

It's not even grammatically correct!
