In The House Of My Dear Father


How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of host! My soul longs, yes, even faints for

The courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God *

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where

She may lay her young----even Your alters, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.

Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; they will still be praising You. Selah ~

Blessed is the one whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a spring; the rain also

Covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; each one appears before

God in Zion. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah *

O God, behold our shield, and look upon the face of Your anointed. For a day

In Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of

My God, then to dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield

The Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those

Who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed are they whom trust in You *


....“Psalm 84 * `O My Soul`” ~

    There are no words really to say about Beyound the night. Tears welled in the softest part of me when I read the new peom elsewhere. I only want and need to express love to you in the gentle ways that are with such softness my heart has never known, Lucinda

    Can't be anything else that a psalm; perfection in the wording and so full of meaning. A beautiful way to exspress your faith John. This one shines!

    Really enjoyed your post of the above psalm John; you can do no wrong in studying the scriptures; they will imbue a person with a real sense of poetry second to none..!

    Glad you enjoyed my poem, John. I wrote 11 poems this last week - in all 1,500. I don't post them all of course. Enjoyed your In the House of My Dear Father. How amazing it will be to be in the presence of the Almighty. What a joy to know that it is possible because we are covered by Christ's righteousness - something we can't achieve. Smile :) God bless, Maureen
