My Holy House


My Holy House

Seminary Music: New Testament

1. Windows and doors open and close,

Keeping out and letting in,

The dark and the light, wrong and the right.

I decide what enters in .

Things that I choose determine if

I lose all the light that’s within my holy house.

 

2. Shadowy voice speaks at my door

With many dark things to say.

What should I do?

The Spirit inside tells me I should turn away.

A temple of light with windows clean and bright,

Lights the soul that’s within my holy house.

Mine is a house of holiness, up to me to keep it clean.

My own temple full of love and light,

Where the Spirit stays with me.

I begin to see.  Souls in need, knocking so gently;

Hearts to feed. Should I let them into my life?

 

3. Seeking to help, seeking to care, making a welcome place;

With each kind step, love fills the room,

Granting the Savior’s grace.

A temple of light with windows clean and bright.

Lights the soul that’s within my holy house.

Mine is a house of holiness, up to me to keep it clean.

My own temple full of love and light,

Where the spirit stays with me.

Mine is a house of holiness, up to me to keep it clean;

My t own temple full of love and light

 Where the Spirit stays with me, where the Spirit stays with me.
