Gerar. S. M. The Glories of the Sanctuary.
The Glories of the Sanctuary.
How charming is the place
Where my Redeemer God
Unveils the glories of his face,
And sheds his love abroad!
2 Here, on the mercy seat,
With radiant glory crowned,
Our joyful eyes behold him sit,
And smile on all around.
3 To him their prayers and cries,
Each contrite soul presents;
And while he hears their humble sighs
He grants them all their wants.
4 Give me, O Lord, a place
Within thy blest abode;
Among the children of thy grace,
The servants of my God.
