To gaze upon your beauty, worship at your feet
Oh, one thing I seek
The lord is my light
And my salvation
And whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear
The Lord is my strength
The stronghold of my life
And whom shall I fear?

One thing I ask and I will seek
To dwell in the house of the Lord all my days
To gaze upon your beauty,…’.
