Thus says the LORD, "Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest?  For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being," declares the LORD. "But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.   Is. 66:1-2

House of Rest

 

Will you build me a house for my dwelling, my son
 Will you raise me a building of stone

A dwelling of rest from the work that is done

With a foot stool of silver and gold

 

Will you fill it with bread, the best of the earth

And richest of wine of the fields

The choicest of fruit of the vine for my thirst

And the finest of wheat for my meal

 

Yes Father, I'll build for you

A dwelling, your house of rest

Gold and jewels to laden its walls

And abundantly filled

With the finest of grain for your bread

 

The cost for this house of Thine own precious blood

Will in anguish be sorrowfully paid

But my word will perform that Thy name will be known

In all glory and honor and praise

 

(Chime and Cello interlude)

 

Yes Father, I'll build for you

A dwelling, your house of rest

Gold and jewels to laden its walls

And abundantly filled

With the finest of grain for your bread

(Chime and Cello Ending)
