Something you can touch

That you can see

This is the location

Of Christ’s mystery

I met it first

When just a child

Sanctuary flame

Tabernacle home

Communion the same


This is what Christ gives us

Living bread to eat

Reserved for adoration

Come in off the street

Rest awhile and listen

Let the silence speak

This is home enjoy it

Blessed are the meek


Icons statues candles

Incense for our prayer

Holy water blessing

In the font just there

Iconoclasts are foolish

They know not what they do

The Eucharist the sanctuary

Is where we find what’s true
