LYRICS

God Himself is with us – let us now adore Him –
and with awe, appear before Him.
God is in His temple – all within keep silent –
prostrate lie in deepest reverence.

Him alone, God we own –
Him, our God and Saviour.
Praise His Name forever.

O, Thou fount of blessing, purify my spirit
I trust only in Thy merit.
Like the Holy angels who behold Thy Glory,
may I never cease to praise Thee.

and in all – great and small
seek to do most nearly
what Thou lovest dearly.

God reveals His presence – hear the music sounding.
Alleluias ring around Him.
“Holy, Holy, Holy” – hear the hymn ascending
all the saints their voices blending.

Bow Thine ear to us here – hear, O Christ, the praises
that Thy church now raises.

Alleluia – Amen.

hymn – Joachim Neander – 1680
text – Gerhardt Tersteegen – 1697-1769
