In The Presence Of Thy Sanctity

In The Presence Of Thy Sanctity

As I sit before Thy sacred shrine.
Your stillness-peace within I feel.
Grace points me to an inner thrill,
I know the effort is not mine.

Around me all is calm, serene,
Your spirit percolates my being.
Before I even think of Thee,
Thy bliss is flowing, ever free.

Your Love is sanctimonious, keen,
So selfless for a wretch like me.
When all I’ve done is enter in
The presence of Thy Sanctuary.

– Manatita Hutchinson.
