3 ~ God Himself Is With Us
God Himself is with 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, in-dwelling 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.
