HOW LOVELY ARE YOUR DWELLING PLACES. Psalm 83 (84)

    Do                           Mi-       La-
C.  How lovely are your dwelling places, O Lord,
    Do      Mi-
    Lord of Hosts!
       Fa             Do                           Sol
    My soul longs and yearns for the courts of the Lord.


    Do               Mi-     La-
    Even the sparrow finds a home, 
        Do          Mi-
    the swallow its nest
    Fa                  Do
    near your altars, O Lord,
                   Sol
    my king and my God,
                   Do
A.  MY KING AND MY GOD.


    Fa                            Do
C.  Happy is he who lives in your house
                      Sol
    Ever singing your praise, 
                      Do
A.  EVER SINGING YOUR PRAISE.


    Fa                                Do
C.  Happy is he who finds in you the strength
                       Sol
    And decides in his heart
              Do
A.  THE HOLY JOURNEY.


    Do                  Mi-       La-
    PASSING THROUGH THE VALLEY OF TEARS,
       Do                Mi-
    HE CHANGES IT INTO A PLACE OF SPRINGS
    Fa                           Do
    GROWS ALONG THE WAY IN HIS PRESENCE
                       Sol
    TILL HE ARRIVES IN SION, 
                       Do
    TILL HE ARRIVES IN SION.


        Fa               Do
C.  For me a day in your courts
                         Sol
    is worth more than a thousand
                    Do
A.  THAN A THOUSAND ELSEWHERE
         Fa                              Do
C.  because to dwell at the gate of your house
                      Sol
    is better than to live 
                          Do
A.  IN THE PALACES OF THE MIGHTY.


    Do                  Mi-       La-
    PASSING THROUGH THE VALLEY OF TEARS ...


    Fa                                Do
C.  Happy is he who finds in you the strength
                       Sol
    And decides in his heart
              Do
A.  THE HOLY JOURNEY.
