Only one thing I ask of the Lord my God
And it’s all that I seek today:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to meditate in His courts with praise
All the days of my life.
Lord, I want to dwell in Your presence all my days,
And when I die, I want to dwell with You on high;
In my worship may I focus on You alone,
Both now and then, forevermore!
While some may boast in their wisdom or fame,
In strength of might, or of their many riches;
Yet there’s one thing I know, and this is my only aim:
To know You, Lord,
Your lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness,
On earth as in Heaven.
