Better Is One Day




How lovely is Your dwelling place O Lord Almighty

For my soul longs and even faints for You

For here my heart is satisfied within Your Presence

I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings


Better is one day in Your courts

Better is one day in Your house

Better is one day in Your courts

Than thousands elsewhere


One thing I ask and I would seek

To see Your beauty

To find You in the place Your Glory dwells


Better is one day in Your courts

Better is one day in Your house

Better is one day in Your courts

Than thousands elsewhere


My heart and flesh cry out

For You the Living God

Your Spirit waters to my soul

I've tasted and I've seen

Come once again to me

I will draw near to You

I will draw near to You, to You
