Longing for God🕊

84:1 How lovely are your dwelling places,
    Lord of the Heavenly Armies.
I desire and long
    for the Temple courts of the Lord.
My heart and body sing for joy
    to the living God.
Even the sparrow found a house for herself
    and the swallow a nest
to lay[d] her young at your altar,
    Lord of the Heavenly Armies,
        my king and God.
How happy are those who live in your Temple,
    for they can praise you continuously.
Interlude

How happy are those whose strength is in you,
    whose heart is on your path.
They will pass through the Baca Valley
    where he will prepare a spring for them;
        even the early rain will cover it with blessings.
They will walk from strength to strength;
    each will appear before God in Zion.

Lord God of the Heavenly Armies, hear my prayer!
    Listen, God of Jacob!
Interlude

God, look at our shield,
    and show favor to your anointed,
10 for a day in your Temple courts is better
    than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather stand
    at the entrance of God’s house
        than live in the tent of wickedness.

11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
    the Lord grants grace and favor;
the Lord will not withhold any good thing
    from those who walk blamelessly.
12 Lord of Heavenly Armies,
    how happy are those who trust in you.🕊
