¶ Upon Githith, a Psalm of the sons of Corah.O how amiable are thy dwellings, thou LORD of Hosts? My soul hath a desire and longing, for the court of the LORD, my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God. For the sparrow hath found her an house, and the swallow a nest, where she may lay her young: even thine altars, O LORD of Hosts, my King, and my God. O how blessed are they that dwell in thy house, they are alway praising thee. Selah. Blessed are the men whose strength is in thee, in whose heart are thy ways. Which going thorow the vale of misery, use it for a well, and the pools are filled with water. They go from strength to strength, and so the God of Gods appeareth unto them in Sion.
¶ O LORD God of Hosts, hear my prayer: harken O God of Iacob. Behold, O God our defense, look upon the face of thine anointed. For one day in thy court is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, then to dwell in the tents of the ungodly. For the LORD God is a light and defense, 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.
