One Thing Lyrics
One thing I desire of the Lord,
And that I may seek after,
That I may dwell in the house
Of the Lord forever.
And to inquire in His temple,
In time of trouble He hides me.
(In the sacrifice of the temple).
He shall hide me,
He shall set me high upon the rock.
And now head shall be lifted above
And enemies all around me,
And therefore I offer sacrifice of joy forever.
One thing that I desire,
That I will seek after,
That I may dwell
In the house forever and ever.
"One thing have I desired from the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a Rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: Therefore will I offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy. I will sing, yea I will sing praises unto the Lord." (Psalm 27 4-6.)
