Psalm 84 is a journey psalm. It is for people who like the psalmist are captivated by the beauty of God’s house, but who know that they have not arrived there yet. This journey we are on requires a faith that perseveres through hardships and yet still believes that God will give his people every good thing. As believers in Christ, we sing this song knowing that he has gone to prepare a place for us where someday we will be with him forever.
To the choirmaster: according to the Gittith. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.
How lovely your dwelling place, LORD of hosts!
My soul longs and faints even for the LORD’s courts!
My heart and my flesh to the living God sing!
A sparrow will there find a home.
A swallow a nest also has for herself,
And there with your altars her young she has laid.
My king and my God, LORD of Hosts, they are blessed
Who dwell in your house; they will praise you again !
And blessed is the man who finds his strength in you;
In their heart there are highways. As they journey on,
The Valley of Baca they make like a spring;
It also is covered with blessings by rain.
From strength unto strength they will walk, then appear
Before God At Zion. O LORD, God of Hosts,
Attend to my prayer; God of Jacob, give ear.
O God see our shield; Your Messiah’s face view!
Because just one day spent inside of your courts
Is better by far than one thousand removed.
To stand, O my God, at the door of your house,
I’d choose over living in tents full of sin.
Because the LORD God is a sun and a shield,
The LORD will give glory and grace.
From those walking rightly no good will refuse —
O blessed is the man, LORD of hosts, who trusts in you!
