Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 84 Quam dilecta!

O how amiable are thy dwellings, 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 door-keeper 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.
