Ivory Palaces
Words and Music by Henry Barraclough

Psalm 45:8
"All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia,
out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad."

PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL

          My Lord has garments so wondrous fine,
          And myrrh their texture fills;
          Its fragrance reached to this heart of mine,
          With joy my being thrills.

            Chorus
            Out of the ivory palaces,
            Into a world of woe,
            Only His great, eternal love
            Made my Savior go.

          In garments glorious He will come,
          To open wide the door;
          And I shall enter my heavenly home,
          To dwell forevermore.

            Chorus
            Out of the ivory palaces,
            Into a world of woe,
            Only His great, eternal love
            Made my Savior go.
