The Holiest We Enter

by Mary Bowley

Tune: Aurelia

1 THE holiest we enter
In perfect peace with God;
Through whom we found our centre
In Jesus and His blood:
Though great may be our dullness
In thought and word and deed,
We glory in the fulness
Of Him that meets our need.

2 Much incense is ascending
Before the eternal throne;
God graciously is bending
To hear each feeble one;
To all our prayers and praises
Christ adds His sweet perfume,
And He the censer raises
These odours to consume.

3 O God, we come with singing,
Because Thy great High Priest
Our names to Thee is bringing,
Nor e'er forgets the least:
For us He wears the mitre,
Where "Holiness" shines bright;
For us His robes are whiter
Than heaven's unsullied light.

Ian Purdie said ...
Having been saved at a Brethren Gospel meeting in Scotland, in 1959, when I was received into fellowship six months later, I was, for the first time in my life, lost in wonder, love and praise.
Breaking of Bread in this
way, with kindred spirits
has to be experienced, to
realize, that true worship
is to be totally occupied, in the Presence of God HIMSELF....!
