Better Is One Day

     E                            
How lovely is Your dwelling place,
A           B 
oh Lord Almighty
 E                                 B
My soul longs and even faints for You
     E     
For here my heart is satisfied,
A              B 
within Your presence
   E                               B
I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings

Chorus:
          A
Better is one day in Your courts                
          B
Better is one day in Your house                
          A
Better is one day in Your courts
          B
Than thousands elsewhere      

E
One thing I ask and I would seek,
A              B 
to see Your beauty
    E                                 B
To find You in the place Your glory dwells 


C#m7                     B  
My heart and flesh cry out,
A                    B 
for You the living God
C#m7                  B      A   B 
Your spirit's water for my soul
C#m7                   B 
I've tasted and I've seen,
A                   B
 come once again to me
C#m7          B       A 
I will draw near to You
                    F#m11 
I will draw near to You
