Psalm 84

Psalm 84

How lovely is Your tabernacle,

O Lord of hosts!

My soul longs, yes, even faints

For the courts of the Lord;

My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

IMG_2857Even the sparrow has found a home,

And the swallow a nest for herself,

Where she may lay her young –

Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts,

My King and my God.

Blessed are those who dwell in Your house;

They will still be praising You.

IMG_2924Blessed is the man whose strength is in You,

Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

As they pass through the Valley of Baca,

They make it a spring;

The rain also covers it with pools.

They go from strength to strength;

Each one appears before God in Zion.

IMG_2948O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;

Give ear, O God of Jacob!

O God, behold our shield,

And look upon the face of Your anointed.

IMG_3032For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.

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

Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;

The Lord will give grace and glory;

No good thing will He withhold

From those who walk uprightly.

IMG_2841O Lord of hosts,

Blessed is the man who trusts in You!
