One thing I ask of the Lord; this I seek:
To dwell in the Lord’s house all the days of my life,
to gaze on the Lord’s beauty, to visit his temple.
For God will hide me in his shelter in time of trouble,
will conceal me in the cover of his tent and set me high upon a rock.

Even now my head is held high above my enemies on every side!
I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and chant praise to the Lord.

Psalm 27 continued – verses 4-6
