As a worship team, it is our deepest desire to put praise on the lips of God’s people, to create moments in worship where we simply meet with God in His presence. We have called this album Sanctuary. A sanctuary is a place of refuge and safety, or a holy place. Psalm 77:13 declares that God is in the sanctuary. These songs express our hearts desire to rest and take refuge in the presence of God. The Psalmist said, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Then listen to the declaration, “I will say of the LORD, HE is my refuge. My God, in Him, will I trust.” (Psalm 91:1-2)
Every Sunday, we worship in the beautiful historic First Dallas Sanctuary. It was erected generations ago by people who desired to create a place to meet with God. Because of the union of Christ with His church, the sanctuary is no longer confined to a geographical location. This place of refuge is found directly in the presence of God. HE is our hope. HE is our resting place. HE is our Sanctuary.
It’s our prayer that as you sing along with these songs, that your heart is filled with sweet moments of worship, finding refuge and restoration in the presence of God.
