Behind the Curtain
Whatís behind the curtain?
If I looked what would I see?
The mercy seat of God Most High -
Is it not the place for me?
As I cry out in deep distress
Prostrate in helpless need
Does God hide behind the curtain
And fail to intercede?
I know that Iím not worthy
Iím deeply stained with sin
But surely at the mercy seat
There is cleansing from within
For the God of Heaven refuses
To wash his hands of me
My wayward soul He longs for -
To capture and set free
The price He paid was costly
Neither silver, nor pure gold
But the blood of Christ, His Son
Broke sinís stranglehold
By a love that knows no limits
From the top, the curtainís torn
By His death and resurrection
I have been reborn
The curtain still is open
The invitationís mine
To sit beside my Saviour
And against His heart recline
