God Himself Is Present

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. God Himself is present: 
Let us now adore Him 
And with awe appear before Him. 
God is in His temple– 
All within keep silence, 
Prostrate lie with deepest reverence. 
Him alone God we own, 
Him, our God and Savior; 
Praise His name forever. 

2. God Himself is present: 
Hear the harps resounding; 
See the hosts the throne surrounding! 
“Holy, holy, holy”– 
Hear the hymn ascending, 
Songs of saints and angels blending. 
Bow Thine ear To us here: 
Hear, O Christ, the praises 
That Thy Church now raises. 

3. O Thou Fount of blessing, 
Purify my spirit, 
Trusting only in Thy merit. 
Like the holy angels, 
Who behold Thy glory, 
May I ceaselessly adore Thee. 
Let Thy will Ever still 
Rule Thy Church terrestrial 
As the hosts celestial.
