In The Splendor 
Of Your Courts


I come, I long to behold Your beauty, O God
To seek Your face in the splendor of Your courts

Day and night at Your feet
All my  life content to be

Just singing praise
to the glory of my King

From 1986 to 1999, Rev. Wayne Anderson led a series of spiritual intimacy
seminars at Crossroads.  Among the topics covered were  "Abba Father"
"Grace, Faith and Focus" and "Silence, Solitude and Prayer". 
This song, and many others, were inspired by those teachings.

This song was recorded by Duffy and Barbara Kirklewski
and used as an introductory theme song for
their church's weekly radio program.
They also used "Heavens and Earth" for these programs.


I would like to request permission to use the following songs for a Music in Religion Day
to be held at the Anglican Church of St. Stephen in Toronto, Canada. 
These special Days are held every year,
where choir directors introduce new music to congregations.

I am the organist/choir director at the church,
and I had heard the music when I attended a Christian concert last year. 
The pieces are:    "In The Splendor of Your Courts",
"Bless the Lord (Calypso)" and "Oh The Wondrous Cross"

(Arlene, from Canada)

What a joy it is to serve the Lord this morning 
as we worship Him with several of your songs. 

"Now Our God"  ... "Thine, O Lord" ...
"In The Splendor Of Your Courts"
  and our favorite 
greeting song (everybody goes around for a good 
five minutes to greet each other)
"Bless The Lord (Calypso)"
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your ministry.

(Linda in New Hampshire)


Recorded on:  "Closest Friends".
