One Day

This day my shadow lingers
‘Twixt the threshold and the world
Transformed by the glory
Of the living God unfurled.

One glance away doth tell me
What my heart already knows
Better is one day in His courts
Than a thousand days of worldly woes.

How lovely is His dwelling place
Where my heart cries out to Him
And walks the Zion highway
To where the sparrows sing.

One glance away doth tell me
What my heart already knows
Better is one day in His courts
Than a thousand days of worldly woes.

Birds nesting near His altar
Have found a home near Him
I yearn to make my home also
In the courtyard of My King.

One glance away doth tell me
What my heart already knows
Better is one day in His courts
Than a thousand days of worldly woes.

Streaming sunbeams fill His temple
While my soul doth long for Him
Lord of heaven’s armies
God of Hosts, the Living King.

One glance away doth tell me
What my heart already knows
Better is one day in His courts
Than a thousand days of worldly woes.

The God of Jacob hears my prayers
Looks down upon my face
And in His tabernacle shines
His glory and His grace

One glance away doth tell me
What my heart already knows
Better is one day in Your courts
Than a thousand days of worldly woes.



*Based on Psalm 84
