3 My soul yearns and pines for the courts of the Lord.(A)My heart and flesh cry out for the living God.
4 [a]As the sparrow finds a home and the swallow a nest to settle her young,My home is by your altars, Lord of hosts, my king and my God!(A)
5 Blessed are those who dwell in your house! They never cease to praise you.Selah
6 Blessed the man who finds refuge in you, in their hearts are pilgrim roads.
8 They will go from strength to strength[a] and see the God of gods on Zion.
12 For a sun and shield is the Lord God, bestowing all grace and glory.The Lord withholds no good thing from those who walk without reproach.
