View Lyrics
How lovely is Your dwelling,
O Lord of hosts, to me;
my soul is longing, fainting,
the courts of God to see.
The beauty of Your dwelling
will bring me joy anew;
my heart and flesh are crying,
O living God, for You.

Beneath Your care the sparrow
finds place for peaceful rest;
to keep her young in safety,
the swallow finds a nest.
So Lord, my King Almighty,
Your love will shelter me;
beneath Your wings of mercy,
my dwelling place will be.

Blest they who love and serve You,
whose joy and strength You are.
Forever they will praise You,
Your ways are in their heart.
Your mercy falls like showers
to fill the springs of peace;
and all the way to Zion,
their joy shall still increase.
