featuring the Augustana Choir – Dr. Marc Hafso directing

How Lovely is Thy dwelling place,
O Lord of Hosts
My soul longs, yea faints for the courts of the Lord
My heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God
For a day in Thy courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere
For the Lord God is a sun and shield
He bestows favor and honor!
No good thing does the Lord withhold
from those who are upright.
O Lord of hosts
blessed are they who trust in Thee!
How lovely is Thy Dwelling place,
from Psalm 84
