Better Is One Day Lyrics - Chris Tomlin

Review The Song (19)



How lovely is
Your dwelling place
Oh Lord Almighty,
For my soul longs
And even faints
For You
Oh, here my heart
Is satisfied (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
sponsored links
Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere
(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)
One thing I ask
And I would seek,
To see Your beauty
To find You in
The place Your glory dwells

Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere
Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere
(Better is one day)
Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere
Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere

(My heart and flesh cry out)
My heart and flesh cry out
To 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
To You

Better is one day
Better is one day
Better is one day
Than thousands elsewhere
(2x)
Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere
(4X)
Yeah, than thousands elsewhere (Yeah)
Oh, than thousands elsewhere

God is better than the best! | Reviewer: leslie gedaya | 6/8/14

one day in God's presence is better than being in some place else for a veeeeery long time for only in His court can we find serenity,the joy of living, completeness, acceptance despite and in spite of our imperfections, and the true essence of our exitence. praise God for your life, Chris Tomlin!

Better is one day | Reviewer: Sue Bour | 4/5/13

I have not heard this song for many years. It has been one of my favorites, it speaks to my soul. I was reminded of it this Easter Sunday, March 31,2013. God is timeless.
Thank you Chris Tomlin, Great uplifting song!

Diligently seeking GOD | Reviewer: Ronnie Monroe | 11/6/09

The strugle in dieing to self is a greatly appreciated lesson;some times it may not seem like it.The pain in that strugle i don't like.The pain of strugle brings me to know that where the Lord dwells he allows me to visit whenever i chose.That encouragement recently makes me know how real the Lord truly is.

better is one day in your courts | Reviewer: klouzy8c@yahoo.com | 4/15/09

with the hard trials and tribulations am undergoing,an surprised that my brothers and sisters want me to look back and get back to catholism and that when I do so my suffering will be over.this is because I have my life to Christ and Him alone.thinking of this,the song better one day in your courts springs my mind and I can be assured that God is speaking on my situation.If He is on my side who can be against?thanks Tomlin for the uplifting song.

One day | Reviewer: sammy | 4/1/09

As we know JESUS is the LORD ALMIGHTY. the day with him is really really great and there is nothing equal to that happiness which we can feel in the house of GOD. HE IS THE TRUE LOVING FATHER GOD FOR US FOREVER

a favorite | Reviewer: alexxus | 12/28/07

this song is one of my favorite. it reminds me the importance of being in God's presence at all times. And it is in His courts that we can feel His presence and not elsewhere.

Wow | Reviewer: Kiana | 11/28/07

Wow this song really helps me when I listen to it. My nephew just died a few weeks ago, so when I think about what a great place he is in it helps. He doesn't have to grow up on earth. He gets to grow up with God. it is true better is a one day with God than thousands of days anywhere else.

This song is sooooooooo cool! | Reviewer: Abby | 11/7/07

This song is sooooooooo cool!
I truly believe that it will be better to spend just ONE day in God's courts then thousand of days anywhere else.
I also know that we will spend FOREVER in His courts one day!


ONE THING! ONE THING! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/16/07

"One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I SEEK, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the BEAUTY of the Lord and to seek him in his temple." Psalm 27:4

I praise you Lord that You are water for my soul, that I have tasted and I have seen your goodness and that you always come back to me, you never stop pursuing me! Praise the One that allows us to spend a day in His house where we are truly satisfied and where we so long to be!

better is one day then a thousand elsewhere | Reviewer: morgan | 9/1/07

I truly belive that when we go to heaven that one day we will see him. I also belive that better is one day in his courts and house of the Lord then a thousand else where. And thru Him and His Holy and complete sacrafice.. a day wid da Lord cud be lived every day!!. and i think this is a blessed song.

His LOVE LASTS FOREVER AMEN | Reviewer: Dustin Smith | 8/13/07

In His Presence And In His Power There Is No Mightier God then Jesus. His Love Fills Threw Us. This Song Lets Us Know We Can Enter Threw God Anytime. His Love For Us And His Death On The Cross Changed My Life. I Know How Much He Loved Us, The Whole World.

i love this song! | Reviewer: Victoria | 7/30/07

I personally love this song, it gives me cold shivers when i hear it because i know how true the words are and I know that my family and loved ones are spending their days in those "Other" places and how it is so easy to slip out of touch with the lord. That ONE day in his Presences can make you a whole new person. If anyone can love us with unconditional love like he does... then why wouldn't we want to be in his presence, his courts, his house!?!?
