in dem lebendigen Gott.
Wohl denen, die in deinem Hause wohnen,
die loben dich immerdar. Psalm 84:1,2,4

How lovely are thy tabernacles,
O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, yea, even faints
for the courts of the Lord:
my heart and my flesh cries out
for the living God.
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house:
they will always be praising thee. Psalm 84:1,2,4
