One thing(A) I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,(B)
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble(C)
    he will keep me safe(D) in his dwelling;
he will hide me(E) in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.(F)

Then my head will be exalted(G)
    above the enemies who surround me;(H)
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice(I) with shouts of joy;(J)
    I will sing(K) and make music(L) to the Lord.

Hear my voice(M) when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.(N)
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!(O)
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face(P) from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;(Q)
    you have been my helper.(R)
Do not reject me or forsake(S) me,
    God my Savior.(T)
