the worship place

Her priests I will clothe with salvation,
and her saints will shout for joy.
Psalm 132:16

A promise so bold
made to saints of old
Jerusalem held the holy place
where people came to know God's grace
there on Zion's hill
they repented and sought God's will

Salvation was the promise from heaven
as priests sacrificed animals given
brought by people in their sin
who in obedience entered in
covenant on temple site
there to be set right

The joy of forgiveness of transgression
of the law was now in possession
worship of the Lord in His place
brought a grateful smile to each face
looking up to heaven
sins atoned, now forgiven

Salvation's garment now worn
in obedience now adorned
joyfully praising new behavior
walking back down Zion's hill
leaving that place to do His will
