There is a sweet anointing in the sanctuary
There is a stillness in the atmosphere
O come and lay down the burdens you have carried
For in the sanctuary God is here.

He is here, He is here
To break the yoke and lift the heavy burden
He is here, He is here
To heal the hopeless heart and bless the broken.

O come and lay down the burdens you have carried
For in the sanctuary God is here

Speak Lord, Speak Lord
Speak Lord, Speak Lord
Speak Lord, Speak Lord
Speak Lord, Speak Lord
Speak Lord, Speak Lord
Speak Lord, Speak Lord
Speak Lord, Speak Lord

O come and lay down the burdens you have carried
For in the sanctuary God is here

    This is an awesome song. The first time I heard this song it about two years ago I felt so lifted in my spirit. This is indeed a spirit filled song.

    We can't hide our feelings from our creator, he alone can speak into our lives and heal our broken hearts. We need to invite him to speak his word into our lives. Just one word from god can change our lives but we need to welcome him first into our affairs!
