Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Ivory Palaces

Full Text

1 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.

Refrain:
Out of the ivory palaces,
into a world of woe,
only his great, eternal love
made my Savior go.

2 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. [Refrain]

3 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. [Refrain]

4 In garments glorious he will come,
to open wide the door;
and I shall enter my heavenly home,
to dwell forevermore. [Refrain]
