84 (3)Psalm 84 Version 3CM
MY soul, how lovely is the place
   To which thy God resorts!
’Tis Heaven to know His smiling face
    Here in His earthly courts.
2  For here the God of earth and skies
    His saving power displays;
And light breaks in on mortal eyes
    With kind and quickening rays.
3  And here the quickening, heavenly Dove,
    Descends to fill the place,
While Christ makes known His mighty love
    And sheds abroad His grace.
4  Here, Lord, to me Thy Word declare,
    The secrets of Thy will;
And help me seek all fulness here,
    And sing Thy praises still.
5  To spend one day within the place
    Where my dear Lord has been,
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
    Of earth’s most vaunted sin.
Isaac Watts, 1674-1748‡
