How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts! My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God. Psalm 84:1–2

Yes, Lord, Thy tabernacles are indeed amiable to my soul. Like David, I was glad when they said unto me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” And yet Thy servant David at a distance longed—yes, even fainted with desire—for these gracious opportunities that I enjoy. How thankful should I be that I can draw near Thee, that I can so often enjoy the welcome, returning Sabbaths and meet so often at Thy Table with my brethren and companions. Lord, cause my longings after Thee to be more fervent; let my heart and flesh cry out more intensely for Thee. Thy tabernacles are only amiable when Thou art seated in the midst; Thy courts are adorned when Thou, O King, appearest in Thy galleries (Song 7:5). Thy Table is a feast indeed when Thou comest in to see the guests and givest the welcome benediction. Today, my Lord, draw near to bless me; awaken my thankfulness and open my lips that my mouth may show forth Thy praise. Raise up my heart to Thee in the heavens, and from the tabernacles of Thy grace may my ascending soul mount up to the tabernacles of Thy glory. How amiable it will be, O Lord, when I will come to appear among the shining host that dwells forever there! When will my soul abide in this temple forever, and go out no more? Thou God of my life—who hast given me the desire to see Thee—wilt not disappoint the desires Thou hast kindled in me. In my flesh I will see God. Praise the Lord, O my soul!
