Our Sanctuary – A Poem

 

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

In troubling times it is a comfort and blessing to know that our safety is not in the hands of faulty men.  Our sanctuary is also not in some church building, but in the person of Jesus Christ!  Because of this, we can have our sanctuary with us at all times.  What a blessing and comfort!

Our Sanctuary

Jesus! before Thy face we fall,
Our Lord, our life, our hope, our all;
For we have nowhere else to flee;
No Sanctuary, Lord, but Thee.

In Thee we every glory view,
Of safety, strength, and beauty too;
'Tis all our rest and peace to see
Our Sanctuary, Lord, in Thee.

Whatever foes or fears betide,
In Thy blest presence let us hide;
And while we rest our souls on Thee,
Thou shalt our Sanctuary be.

Through time, with all its changing scenes,
And all the grief that intervenes,
Let this support each fainting heart,
That Thou our Sanctuary art.

C. Medley

Isaiah 8:13-14  Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. And he shall be for a sanctuary…
