The Tabernacle Of David - Poem by Richard Merrell

The tabernacle of Moses
Has passed away in time;
But not so David's tent
Where I partake of bread and wine.

The tabernacle of David
True building of the Lord
With the power of God's presence
According to God's Word.

The tabernacle of David
Where I can worship free,
Before the throne of God
Because this truth I see.

The tabernnacle of David
Is where I'll always dwell
But to live in Moses' tabernacle
Is but religious hell.

Now, you must make a choice
Between religion and the truth;
And leave the outer court
Let me give you this reproof.

When in David's tabernacle
You will see God face to face
For by another name -
It's called Most Holy Place!
