Scripture: Psalm 84
1. How lovely, Lord, how lovely Is Your abiding place; My soul is longing, fainting, To feast upon Your grace. The sparrow finds a shelter, A place to build her nest; And so Your temple calls us Within its walls to rest. 2. In Your blest courts to worship, O God, a single day Is better than a thousand If I from You should stray. I'd rather keep the entrance And claim You as my Lord Than revel in the riches The ways of sin afford. 3. A sun and shield forever Are You, O Lord Most High; You shower us with blessings; No good will You deny. The saints, Your grace receiving, From strength to strength shall go, And from their life shall rivers Of blessing overflow.
