This Have I Asked

“One thing have I asked of the Lord,
that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to inquire in his temple.” Psalm 27:4

You called to me to seek you,
I answered that I would.
Here, I’m looking for Your face,
please answer me with good.

Your dwelling, my desire,
let me stay there all my days,
to look upon Your beauty
and Your Son of radiant gaze.

Please let me sit at Your feet
as You teach in temple’s court.
May I listen, ask You questions,
soak up wisdom from My Lord.

This then is my longing
and I know the answer true,
“If you search for Me, You’ll find Me,
and My glory have its due.”
