Achat sha'alti me'eit Hashem, otah avakesh:

אַחַת שָׁאַלְתִּי מֵאֵת-יְהוָה אוֹתָהּ אֲבַקֵּשׁ:
שִׁבְתִּי בְּבֵית-יְהוָה, כָּל-יְמֵי חַיַּי,
לַחֲזוֹת בְּנֹעַם-יְהוָה, וּלְבַקֵּר בְּהֵיכָלוֹ.

One thing I ask from the Lord, one thing I desire
That I might dwell in Your house all the days of my life
To behold the graciousn​ess of the Lord, and to enter God's sanctuary​.
