Psalm 84


O how amiable are thy dwelling,
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 are they that dwell in thy house,
they will be always 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 O God of Jacob.

Behold O God our defender
and look upon the face of thine anointed.

For one day in thy courts,
is better than a thousand.

I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God,
than to dwell in the tents of ungodliness.

For the Lord God is a light and defence,
the Lord will give grace and worship
and no good thing shall he withhold from them,
that live a godly life.

O Lord God of hosts,
blessed is the man that putteth his trust in thee.

Glory be the Father and to the Son
and to the holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end.
