How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings
(Psalm 84: 1-3)
Music by Katherine Davis

How lovely are Thy dwellings,
O Lord of Hosts.
How lovely are Thy dwellings,
O Lord of Hosts.
My soul longeth, Yea, fainteth,
longeth and fainteth
for the courts of the Lord.
My soul longeth, Yea, fainteth,
longeth and fainteth
for the courts of the Lord.
How lovely are Thy dwellings,
O Lord of Hosts.
My soul and body cry aloud,
Yea, for the living God.
My soul and body cry aloud,
Yea, for the living God,
Yea, for the living God,
Yea, for the living God.
How lovely are Thy dwellings,
O Lord of Hosts.
Yea, the sparrow hath found a house,
And the swallow a nest for herself,
Where she may lay her young.
Yea, the sparrow hath found a house,
And the swallow a nest for herself,
Where she may lay her young.
Even thine altars, even thine altars,
O Lord, O Lord of Hosts,
My King and my God,
My King and my God.
How lovely are Thy dwellings,
O Lord of Hosts.
How lovely are Thy dwellings,
O Lord of Hosts. How lovely,
How lovely is Thy dwelling place,
O Lord of Hosts.
