How lovely is Your dwelling place, oh Lord Almighty
Lord 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
Than thousands elsewhere

One thing I ask and I would seek, to see Your beauty
To find You in the place Your glory dwells X 2

Better is one day in Your courts better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts than thousands elsewhere X 4

My heart and flesh cry out for You the living God
Your Spirit's water for 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

Better is one day... Better is one day... Better is one day... Better is one day...

Better is one day in Your courts better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts than thousands elsewhere X 4
Than thousands elsewhere
