How lovely is Your dwelling place,

O Lord Almighty.

My soul longs and even faints for You.

For here my heart is satisfied

within your presence.

I sing beneath the shadow of your wings.

Better is one day in Your courts,

Better is one day in Your courts,

Than thousands elsewhere.

One thing I ask and I would seek,

A            B

to see your beauty.

To find You in the place Your glory dwells. (repeat)
