“There’s a sweet, sweet spirit in this place,
And I know that it’s the Spirit of the Lord;”
~ Hymn by Doris Akers
The sweetness of His Spirit in this place,
The wonder of His mercy and His grace,
His majesty, for searching eyes to see;
I have a God whose glory touches me.
And in this place, I quietly abide
Where every need is tenderly supplied;
And I am cherished more than tongue can tell
For Jesus Christ, my Savior, loves me well.
So here, then, in His bosom I will rest;
And name the countless ways I have been blessed
As Heaven’s glory washes over me
In waves of joy and sweet serenity.
“My meditation of him shall be sweet:
I will be glad in the LORD.”
