SANCTUARY is my personal gift to my husband, Bill Ernst. I wrote this song when we had only known each other a month, and 6 years later, the words ring truer than ever. "When I'm growin' weary, and the load is getting too hard to carry, you come to me -oooo - you're my Sanctuary."


(Pamela Polland)
3/90 for Bill

When I'm growin' weary
And the load is getting too hard to carry
You come to me..........and ooooo......
You're my Sanctuary (2x)

When my heart is heavy
With all the troubles this world seems to carry
You come to me.........and ooooo........
You're my sanctuary (3x)

In the night when stars are bright
You're there to wrap me up in the warm love of your arms.
In the day even when you're far away
Your love's there to lean on......to keep me from harm!

And ooooo..........

You're my sanctuary..........
You're my sanctuary.........
You're my sanctuary.........


from Heart of The World, released January 1, 1995
