Ivory Palaces

Date recorded: September 30, 2011

Words by: Henry Barraclough

Music by: Henry Barraclough

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.


His life had also its sorrows sore,
For aloes had a part;
And when I think of the cross He bore,
My eyes with teardrops start.


His garments too were in cassia dipped,
With healing in a touch;
Each time my feet in some sin have slipped,
He took me from its clutch.


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


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

I am a 77 year old servant of the King of Kings. This year I have completed a course called Identity and Destiny. With my coach Diana beside me and the Holy Spirits power I have my statements of call that were placed into my soul as a servant of our Heavenly Father. “I am a seeker of the true pathway” with a destiny of “I help restore and rebuild broken souls” the Saviors assignments will be “I encourage and exhort people to go deeper into God’s unique purpose for them”. My life’s experiences have taken me to many areas of the worlds locations where hurting souls are living and bring hope and challanges to whoever walk by me at a apointed moment assigned by God. Story’s of both joy and sorrow have come to pass in people who HE brings this way. This song was played in my home as my mother was a musical piano and organ teacher. She told me that when she was a little girl she and the pastor of our Church would at times sing in harmony this song to minister to the people of the Church fellowship with the words telling us to leave our Ivory palaces and hit the streets of the world with HIS Grace and mercy. As God wills for me I hope to use this song as a theme for my coaching assignments to the Glory of God. Praise the Lord always in all things Richard L Cole
