1 Lord Jesus Christ, be with us now,
Our hearts in true devotion bow;
Thy Spirit send with grace divine,
And let Thy truth within us shine.
2 O teach our lips to sing Thy praise,
Our inmost tho'ts in worship raise;
Endue our faith with strength and light
To know Thy precious name aright.
3 Then we shall join the hosts that cry:
Thrice holy is the Lord Most High!
And dwell in Thee in that blest place
Where we shall see Thee face to face.
4 To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Shall wisdom, honor, glory be,
And praise throughout eternity.
