Better Is One Day In Your Court - Sung by Kutless

Whenever I am sad, or glad, or mad, I think of how these feelings are all going to be gone once we meet God in heaven. But while we are here on earth, the place that I am at peace the most is when I am at church, worshipping God; or when I am in the car by myself singing praises at the top of my voice. Truly, better is one day in God's court than thousand elsewhere.

Below is a YouTube video and lyrics. I chose to post this particular version of this song by Kutless because it gives me joy to see a younger generation enjoying worshipping God in their own way. God looks at the heart and I think these young generation's heart is right with God.

How lovely is your dwelling place, oh, Lord almighty
For my soul longs and even faints for you
Lord, here my heart is satisfied within your presence
I sing beneath the shadow of your wings

Better is one day in your court, better is one day in your house
Better is one day in your court than thousands elsewhere

One thing I ask and I would seek, to see your beauty
To find you in the place your glory dwells
One thing I ask and I would seek, to see your beauty
To find you in the place your glory dwells

(Chorus 2x)

My heart and flesh cry out for you the living God
Your spirit's water to my soul
I've tasted and I've seen, come once again to me
I will draw near to you, I will draw near to you

(Chorus 2x)
