God is here among us
if you do not hear the tune, click
God is here among us; let us all adore him,
and with awe appear before him.
God is here within us; soul, in silence fear him,
humbly, fervently draw near him.
Now his own who have known God in worship lowly
yield their spirits wholly.
Come, abide within me; let my soul, like Mary,
be thine earthly sanctuary.
Come, indwelling Spirit, with transfigured splendor;
love and honor will I render.
Where I go here below, let me bow before thee,
know thee, and adore thee.
Gladly we surrender earth's deceitful treasures,
pride of life, and sinful pleasures.
Gladly, Lord, we offer thine to be forever,
soul and life and each endeavor.
Thou alone shalt be known Lord of all our being,
life's true way decreeing.
