  Tenor  
4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require: that I may dwell in 4:16
  the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behond the fair beauty of the  
  Lord, and to visit his temple.

5 I will will offer in his dwelling an oblation with great gladness, I will sing and 3:00
  speak praises unto the Lord.  
  Chorus  
6 For who is God but the Lord? Or who has any strength but the Lord? The 4:16

  were removed; he cast forth lightnings, and gave his tunder, and destroy'd  
  them.  
  Tenor  
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart has trusted in him and I 2:14
  am helped. Therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise  
  him.

9 Sing praises unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks unto him for 3:59
