To the Sanctuary

To the Sanctuary

Have I need of strength?
 Yes, especially in those times
 When I consider myself
 The most strong.
Have I need of wisdom?
 Yes, for even in my cleverness
 Manipulating my environment
 There is yet the danger
 I may be wrong.
Have I need of righteousness?
 Yes, daily and hourly
 And minute passing minute
 I need that covering
 Because of who I am.
Have I need of a Shepherd?
 Yes, One who has all those things
 In Himself and for me - 
 Who will lead me along the Way
 To Himself the Lamb.

So, then, to the Sanctuary
 To the place that is set apart
Honor is there
 And Glory
For there the King presides
 Clothed in strength and beauty
At their fragrance the humble bow.
Wisdom to know what He requires
 And strength to do His will.
Only come before Him
 And before His face be still.
So, to the Sanctuary
 To the place that is set apart
 To the One whose very presence
 Makes whole the human heart.
