1. How lovely is Your dwelling place,
O Lord God, my King.
My heart and flesh cry for Your grace;
my soul faints with yearning.
Blessed are those who dwell in Your house, O God,
and whose strength is in their Lord!
They have set their hearts on the pilgrimage;
set their path upon Your Word.
2. Even as the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow finds a nest
so my place is near my God and King:
at Your altar will I rest.
Hear my prayer, O Lord, look upon my soul,
and know that I am true.
For You, my God, are my sun and shield:
Blessed are those who trust in You!
