Can I Ascend

 Rublev’s Icon of the Trinity.  (Read more about it here:  http://www.wellsprings.org.uk/rublevs_icon/rublev.htm)

Reflecting on Rublev’s Icon of the Trinity and listening the Matt Redman’s “Can I Ascend” this morning and these words are my prayer:

Can I ascend the hill of the Lord?
Can I stand in that holy place?
There to approach the glory of my God,
Come towards to seek your face.

Purify my heart
Purify my hands
For I know it is, on holy ground I’ll stand.

I’m coming up the mountain Lord
I’m seeking you and you alone.
I know that I will be transformed
My heart unveiled before you.
I’m longing for your presence Lord
Envelop me within the clouds.
I’m coming up the mountain Lord
My heart unveiled before you
I will come.

I’m coming to worship
I’m coming to bow down
I’m coming to be with you.

You can listen to the song here:  http://new.music.yahoo.com/matt-redman/tracks/can-i-ascend–1363198

I particularly love the phrase “my heart unveiled before you”, signifying surrender.  I lay it all before you, Lord.
