One Thing

One thing I have desired of the Lord
And that will I seek after
That I may dwell in his house
All the days of my life
And behold the beauty of the Lord

In times of trouble
He will hide me there
Safe in the secret of his temple
He will set me on a rock
So my head will be higher
Than the heads of my enemies around me

Therefore I will offer up my sacrifice of joy
To the Lord in his temple
Therefore will I sing, I will sing
Songs of praise unto the Lord
