Hymn for the Lord's Day

Ivory Palaces

Henry Barraclough
Psalm 45:8

My Lord has garments so wondrous fine,
And myrrh their texture fills;
Its fragrance reached to this heart of mine,
With joy my being thrills.

Out of the ivory palaces
Into a world of woe,
Only His great eternal love ...
Made my Savior go.

His life had also its sorrows sore,
For aloes had a part;
And when I think of the cross he bore,
My eyes with tear-drops start.

Chorus ...

His garments too were in cassia dipped,
With healing in a touch;
Each time my feet in some sin have slipped,
He took me from its clutch.

Chorus ...

In garments glorious He will come,
To open wide the door;
And I shall enter my heav'nly home,
To dwell forever more.

Chorus ...
