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.
