How lovely is your dwelling place,

    Lord Almighty!
My soul yearns, even faints,
    for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
    for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home,
    and the swallow a nest for herself,
    where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
    Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
    they are ever praising you.

    Psalm 84:1-4

O God our redeemer, 
you heard the cry of your people, 
and sent your servant Moses to lead them out of slavery.
 Free us from the tyranny of sin and death, 
and by the leading of your Spirit bring us to our promised land; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord, 
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, now and for ever
