Psalm 84

A lovely dwelling place is our almighty God our soul yearns for His courts as our heart cries out to the living Lord Oh to be like the sparrow and the swallow in its nest to have a place near God’s alter is indeed to be truly blessed Pleading for God to hear our hearts desires in His ear for we His anointed ones would know His favour with no fear A day in God’s house as well as singing God’s praise and reading His love letter is for His own far better Our sun and shield is our God whose favour and honour we are told is given to the blameless walkers to whom nothing good He will withhold The Lord of hosts is the name given to the one who is the blesser on all that trusts in Him for protection from the aggressor poetgord

Sparrows are so commonly used to portray peace and beauty. I love that you used that metaphor here. I love this poem, fav line: Oh to be like the sparrow and the swallow in its nest to have a place near God’s alter is indeed to be truly blessed" so beautiful and so true

Amen to that !! Beautiful translation and interpretation of Psalm 84. Interesting to note that the couple of poems posted in the last 5 minutes are all Christian :)-- mine included.
