Christiaan Johannes Nobels (1938 - 2015) was organist of the Canadian Reformed Church in Brampton, Ontario for many years.

Throughout his life he produced a number of simple arrangements for a number of Genevan Psalm melodies, as well as a number of hymns. In addition, just before his death he successfully completed a set of preludes for each of the 150 Genevan Psalm melodies.

The first part of this meditation is set around verse 1: "O LORD of hosts, almighty King, the praises of your house I sing."

The second part of the meditation is played on the 4' flute, as you hear the birds seeking shelter in and near God's house: "The sparrow finds a home to rest; the swallow builds herself a nest ..."

The chorale setting brings out the strong confession that "LORD, one day in your dwelling place is better than a thousand days
outside the courts of your salvation".

The postlude evokes the thought that "How blessed are those who trust in you."
