Leviticus 24:1-9: A Room In God’s House

Who dwells in the house of the holiest Lord?
The man who is blameless and lives out His word,
And we, His elect, from our sinning restored,
Are given the right of a place in His court.

And we, seven lamp stands, will shine out His light,
Within His dear presence and always in sight.
Our greatest of gifts unto God we ignite,
To show all the nations the goodness of Christ.

And we have the show-bread – the best of our food,
Is Him who has given His body and blood,
And He who was tortured as our substitute,
To mediate and to prepare us a room.

Our bread and our light now in Jesus we see,
Then we as God’s sons must in Christ-likeness be,
Equipped as His sons, giving generously,
Belonging to Him, and in Him we are free.
