Psalm 84

How lovely is Your dwelling place,

O Lord Almighty!

My soul yearns, even faints

for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and my flesh cry out

for the living God


Even the sparrow has found a home,

and the swallow a nest for herself,

where she may have her young ~

a place near Your altar,

O Lord Almighty, my King and my God.

Blessed are those who dwell in Your house;

they are ever praising you.


Blessed are those whose strength is in You,

who have set their hearts on pilgrimage…

They go from strength to strength,

til each appears before God in Zion.


Hear my prayer, O Lord God Almighty;

listen to me, O God of Jacob.

Look upon our shield, O God;

look with favor upon Your anointed one.


Better is one day in Your courts

than a thousand elsewhere;

I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God

than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;

the Lord bestows favor and honor;

no good thing does He withhold

from those whose walk in blameless.


O Lord Almighty,

blessed is the man who trusts in You.


Psalm 84
