164. God Himself is with Us

1 God himself is with us:
let us now adore him,
and with awe appear before him.
God is in his temple--
all within keep silence,
prostrate lie with deepest rev'rence.
Him alone
God we own,
him, our God and Savior;
praise his name forever.

2 God himself is with us:
hear the harps resounding!
See the crowds the throne surrounding!
"Holy, holy, holy"--
hear the hymn ascending,
angels, saints, their voices 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,
and in all,
great and small,
seek to do most nearly
what thou lovest dearly.
