The Temple of My Heart by Magdalene Klinksiek Jenkins

1972 Revival Hymn Collection: The Temple of My Heart

A hymn from the 1972 saskatoon, canada revival.

And when I turned my heart to Thee
Lord, You were waiting there for me;
I cried, “forgive me , Lord, forgive,
Have Grace on me, in me now live,”
You cleansed the temple of my hart.

And when I asked, “O search me God”
You showed me every hidden spot;
I cried: “O break me, Lord, of this,
Of Self, of Pride, Self-Righteousness,”
You cleansed the temple of my heart.
There was so much that had to go,
So much that was my own big show’
So much that had not brought you Praise,
So much that hindered in my faith;
In Faithfulness you cleansed my heart.

So I surrender all to thee,
Where else could I find rest from me;
You are my Master, now my Lord,
Your Spirit teaches me your Word,
And fills the temple of my heart.

  • “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot
