Lord prepare me to be a sanctuary,
Pure and holy, Tried and True,
With thanksgiving, I'll be a living
Sanctuary For You

And If I'm Holy,
As you are Holy,
Someday I'll see you,
Face to Face.
Melt and Mold Me,
Into your Image,
And take me to your
Holy Place.

    General CommentThis song and Refiner's Fire go incredibly well sung one after the other.

    General Commenti think this song is self evident in meaning, but serves its purpose. i agree with pyroheart on the fact that this and refiner's fire go well together. this song is just one of those songs you sing with your eyes shut and really pray it. I like the line "tried and true." u are stronger with each persicution made towards you. to be "tried and true" suggests that ur beleifs were put on trial, and through those trials found to be the honest truth.

    General CommentCan anyone tell me who wrote this? Who has sung it would be helpful, but since it's a worship song I won't count on it. -_^

    General CommentI always pray the first verse prior to recieving Communion, and the second verse after. I also like the line "tried and true", partly because of the lyrics, but also because, if the song is sung with the guys leading and ladies following, it is one of the lines that are sung together, creating a wonderful sound of praise.

    General Commenti know more verses for this song that i havent seen yet on the internet. one verse, i cant remember.. but i know the other one:

    when i'm tempted to forget you presence
    i remember the words you spoke to me
    i am with you at any moment
    i'll go with you call on me

    General Commenta little while ago I had a dream that I was some place where it was really sunny and I was looking at the sky and then sanctuary started playing. it was a very magical moment for me. after I realized what my dream was about I satrted crying because I really think that was a sign from god.
