A soul yearns
Language: English 
Available translation(s): SPA
Oh mighty one, my savior and my God, 
how lovely your dwelling place.
Oh how my soul is longing and yearning is pining for your courts.
My heart and my soul ring out their joy to you Oh God!
Even the sparrow finds a home and the swallow a nest 
to lay their broods by your altars 
oh mighty one my savior my God. 

A beautiful crystal sphere in the form of a dwelling place.
In the in most was the presence of the radiant king of glory.
Behold the greatest splendour shining light on them all 
all revealing beautifying shining light on them all.

The nearer to the center the stronger was the light.
In the inmost was the presence of the radiant king of glory. 
Behold the greatest splendour shining light on them all 
all revealing beautifying shining light on them all.

And as they pass through the bitter valley 
with blessings the early rains clothe it.
