1 God Himself is with us:
Let us now 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.
2 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.
3 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.
