verse 1

God reveals his presence:
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 Saviour,
Praise his name for ever.

verse 2

God reveals his presence:
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.

verse 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.
