Tabernacle Truth

"Then wrought... every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded" (Exodus 36:1).  "Have not I written to thee excellent things... that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?" (Proverbs 22:20,21).  "These things write I unto thee... that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God" (1 Timothy 3:14-15). 

The tabernacle was designed
With types of Christ to be fulfilled. 
God put the wisdom in each mind
Of every worker charged to build.

The house of God we build today
Is not of metal, wood, and stone,
But made of sinners who will pray,
Who trust in Christ, and make Him known. 

The Lord has given us His Word
To know the way we should behave,
And by His Spirit we are stirred
To reach the souls whom He would save. 

The tabernacle truth, O Lord,
Within Your house is still reflected
Wherein Your glory is explored
And Your returning is expected.
