It is good for me to draw near to God

It is good for me to draw near to God.1

Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.2 A day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a door-keeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.3 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.4

The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.5 Therefore will the Lord wait that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.6

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us: … let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience.7
