English. Psalms 84:1-4.
The text of How Lovely Is Your Dwelling Place is taken from Psalm 84:1-4 (NIV). The piece is an attempt to portray the beauty of the heavenly place where our Lord dwells. It is so lovely that the "soul yearns, even faints" to be in presence of the Lord. The opening statement returns near the middle of the piece and then again at the end. The climax comes at "O Lord Almighty, my King and my God," followed by the worship of those dwelling in God's house.
