Psalm 84 or
Coverdale
Quam dilecta!

1How dear to me is your dwelling, O LORD of hosts! *
My soul has a desire and longing for the courts of
the LORD;
my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.

2The sparrow has found her a house
and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young; *
by the side of your altars, O LORD of hosts,
my King and my God.

3Happy are they who dwell in your house! *
they will always be praising you.

4Happy are the people whose strength is in you! *
whose hearts are set on the pilgrims' way.

5Those who go through the desolate valley will find
it a place of springs, *
for the early rains have covered it with pools of water.

6They will climb from height to height, *
and the God of gods will reveal himself in Zion.

7LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; *
hearken, O God of Jacob.

8Behold our defender, O God; *
and look upon the face of your Anointed.

9For one day in your courts is better than
a thousand in my own room, *
and to stand at the threshold of the house of my God
than to dwell in the tents of the wicked.

10For the LORD God is both sun and shield; *
he will give grace and glory;

11No good thing will the LORD withhold *
from those who walk with integrity.

12O LORD of hosts, *
happy are they who put their trust in you!
