Pondering His Presence

Tune: Luckington

('Let all the world in every corner sing')


Redemption's dawn, salvation's happy morn

The curtain torn

In Temple, holy place

God shielded from our face

For there He did reside

[In] Holy of Holies bide

But now open, access to God, come free

Through Christ come we [in]


For He the way has opened for us now

And this be how

His life upon the cross

He gave to redeem loss

That sins forgiven be

Cleansed, washed, eternally

Our only hope, come to God through His Son

The holy one


How can I stand before the Lord God, He

Perfect e'er be

Without a trace of night

His being full of light

His nature love and grace

And His mercies we trace

But Christ His Son, our judgement He did take

Does us saints make


No fine elite, but we who sanctified

in Christ confide

Depend on Him alway

Our rock, our strength, our stay

Eternal life He gave

To us, came to us save

And so redeemed, we join His family

He our Lord be

              Thanks Laura - Erm, except if it's me singing. It brings horrible discontent to all! heehee.

                We’ll be the judge of that...after we’ve heard you sing. No preconceived ideas or judgement by me!
                Like St. Thomas...I’ll have to see (in your case hear you) to believe it!😃
