A Song for Sunday – The Holy of Holies

It’s Sunday and a wonderful day for a song!

Today’s song was recommended by my friend Renee Mallady, who enjoys music as much as I do. Thanks, Renee, for this fabulous suggestion.

It’s called, Holy of Holies. It was first done by the group Truth in the 90’s. Then, The Prestonwood Choir and Orchestra recorded the song.

Before I post the song, I thought I’d add some scripture that beautifully relates to the music you will hear.

From Hebrews 4:14-16:

“So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe.  

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.  

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.

There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”

Lyrics:

Holy of Holies

In the holy of holies
Behind the heavy veil
Sat the Ark of the Covenant
Where the most high dwelt
And only the high priest
Could enter therein
To offer up a sacrifice
For atonement of sin

But the veil was rent in an instant
Revealing that holy place
For on a hill nearby
And a rugged cross
Justice meant grace

Now I can go
Into the holy of holies
I can kneel
And make my petition known
I can go
Into the holy of holies
And although I’m just a common man
Because of God’s redemption plan
I can boldly approach the throne

The blood of sacrifices
Is no more required
For the blood of Christ the spotless lamb
Completely paid the price
And the sacrifice of worship
Will open Heaven’s doors
Allowing us to enter in the presence of the Lord

Now I can go
Into the holy of holies
I can kneel
And make my petition known
I can go
Into the holy of holies

And although I’m just a common man
Because of God’s redemption plan
I can boldly approach the throne

I can go
Into the holy of holies
I can kneel
And make my petition known
I can go
Into the holy of holies

And although I’m just a common man
Because of God’s redemption plan
I can boldly approach the throne

I can boldly approach the throne
