 Solo: How lovely is your dwelling place… / All: How lovely is…

 My soul yearns and pines for the courts of the Lord, my heart and my flesh cry out;

 Even the sparrow may find a home, the swallow a nest for her young.

 Your altars, my King and my God!  /  All: How lovely…

 How happy are they who may dwell in Your courts, How happy when You are their strength;

 Though they might go thru the valley of death, they make it a place of springs.

 Your first rain will bring it to life.  /  All: How lovely…

 O Lord of Hosts, hear my cry, and hearken, O God of Jacob;

 One day in Your house is worth much more to me than ten thousand anywhere else;

 The Lord is my Sun and my Shield.  /  All: How lovely…

Scripture

Psalm 73 select verses) P: Truly God is good to Israel, to such as are pure in heart. C: But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; my steps had nearly slipped. For I was envious of the boastful, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. P: Their eyes bulge with abundance; they have more than heart could wish. C: They scoff and speak wickedly concerning oppression; they speak loftily. P: They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walks through the earth…. C: They say, “How does God know? And is there knowledge in the Most High?” P: Behold, these are the ungodly, who are always at ease; they increase in riches. C: Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocence. For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning. P: When I thought how to understand this, it was too painful for me— C: Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I understood their end. P: Surely You set them in slippery places; C: You cast them down to destruction. Oh, how they are brought to desolation. P: You hold me by my right hand. C: You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. P: Whom have I in heaven but You? C: There is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
