Made with Xara Pieter’s Songs & Music Lord Lord Lord Lord my Savior You are near You are here This the House of the Lord This the House of the Lord This is the House of the LORD  He leads me in the paths of the righteous for His Name’s sake © Pieter Buijs 2011 It was the story of Jacob’s dream of the ladder reaching to heaven and his subsequent realisation that “God was in this place”, that was the occasion for this song. It seems to me that the scriptures tell us that as new creations we are a Holy Spirit temple. Therefore where ever we are, He is there too, He lives in us. Like Jacob we can say where ever we are, “the Lord is in this place and I did not know it. This is none other than the House of the Lord, this is the gate to heaven.”
