God’s Dwelling Place




God’s Dwelling Place
© 2014 Tom D Blakely

May we enter through the veil
Cleansed by Jesus’ blood
To the holy dwelling place
Of  Almighty God.
Fallen sinners once we were
But He paid the price
On the cross He took our place
Christ, our sacrifice.

Sickening to us is sin
We have been forgiven
Clothed in Jesus’ righteousness
Proud to bear His Name.
Battered by the storms of life
We find inner peace
Sheltered here, within the veil
There is sweet relief.

Unseen troubles lie ahead
That would test our faith
But God’s promises we claim
These will be our strength.
When within God’s dwelling place
World’s distractions cease
Contrite minds and openness
Lead to joy and peace.

Keep us to our journey’s end
Lord, You hear our prayer;
Make our hearts Your dwelling place
Blessed Comforter.
