Psalm 27: One Thing


Based on Psalm 27:4, this song is a prayer for the beauty of God to fill our eyes. The music can be adapted to any number of styles, from straight acoustic guitar strumming to a jangly U2 groove. I’ve provided leadsheets in both E minor and C# minor for greater flexibility when using a capo. You’re welcome.

One thing I ask of the Lord.
One thing my longing soul will seek.
One thing I pray my heart will see.
That I may live; live in the house of the Lord
all of the days of my life.
That I may gaze; gaze on the beauty of God.
Splendor divine, fill my eyes.
