Better Is One Day
Darwin Hobbs Lyrics

How lovely is thy dwelling place
Oh Lord Almighty
For my soul longs
And even faints for you
For here my heart is satisfied
Within your presence
I sing beneath the shadow of your wings

Better is one day in your courts
Better is one day in your house
Better is one day in your courts
Than thousands elsewhere

One thing I ask and I would seek
To see your beauty
To find you in the place
Your glory dwells
My heart and flesh cry out

For you the living God
Your spirits water to my soul

I've tasted and I've seen
Come onace again to me
I will draw near to you

This was my 1st time hearing this song. Just loved it. This was played during our communion experience while the sacraments were being passed out. What an awesome praise song.

Nobody has a voice like Darwin in all the world. Such beautiful worship.


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.

😌What a blissful version for Quiet Times, Relaxing Drives or Dinners. It helps me sleep at nite, keeping evil away as I'm ushered in to peaceful sleep. Thank you for posting. Peace & Blessings!🙏
