These words took shape in my heart upon the contemplation of entering His gates:
I come here to praise Him and sing of His goodness,
I come here to dance and delight in His presence.
I dance and rejoice and lift my voice so very high.
I shout and give Him glory to draw my Savior nigh.
In my heart is a fullness that makes me so complete;
It prompts me to lift my hands and stand to my feet!
I cannot contain this joy I have deep inside;
I smile and my heart burst as His spirit passes by.
His glory is here, in His temple among the saints;
I come here to dwell in His blessed holiness.
Oh Father I stretch uplifted hands toward thee,
No other god will I ever set before me.
You are real, you are good, You are my everything!
You are my love; You are my God and my anointed King!
I come into Your house to fellowship with You;
When I open the door You occupy the room.
In Your presence is freedom, forgiveness and love.
I come here to worship You my blessed God above.
Bless the Lord O Zion, Bless His holy name forever!
