Longing for the communion of the sanctuary
||How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!
||My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
||Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.
||Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
||Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
||Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
||They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
||O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
||Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
||For a 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 wickedness.
||For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
||O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
