Succot: Achat Sha'alti

This is Verse four of Psalm 27, which is sung during Succot. The full psalm is read daily during the month of Elul and up to Shemini Atzeret. 

Hebrew:

Achat Sha'alti me'et Adonai Otah avakesh.
Achat Sha'alti me'et Adonai Otah avakesh.

Shivti b'veit Adonai kol y'mei chayai.
Lachazot b'noam Adonai ulvakeir b'heichalo.
Lachazot b'noam Adonai ulvakeir b'heichalo.

English:

One thing I ask, I ask of You,
I earnestly pray for, that I might dwell in Your house all the days of my life.
Knowing the beauty, the beauty of You, and to dwell in Your holy place!
