A Psalm of Desire. Psalm lxxxiv. Quam dilecta! O
dwellings : Thou Lord of hosts!
My soul hath a desire and longing to enter into the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.
Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house, and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young: even Thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
Blessed they that dwell in Thy house : they will be alway praising Thee.
Blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee : in whose heart are Thy ways.
Who going through the vale of misery use it for a well : and the pools are filled with water.
They will go from strength to strength : and unto the God of gods appeareth every one of them in Sion.
O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer : hearken, God of Jacob.
Behold, O God our De. fender: and look upon the face of Thine Anointed. For one
Thy courts : is better than a thou. sand.
I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God : than to dwell in the tents of ungodliness.
