1 Lord Jesus Christ, be present now!
And let Thy Holy Spirit bow
All hearts in love and fear to-day,
To hear the truth and keep Thy way.
2 Open our lips to sing Thy praise,
Our hearts in true devotion raise,
Strengthen our faith,increase our light,
That we may know Thy Name aright:
3 Until we join the hosts that cry
"Holy art Thou, O Lord most High!"
And 'mid the light of that blest place
Shall gaze upon Thee face to face.
4 Glory to God, the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One!
To Thee, O blessed Trinity,
Be praise throughout eternity!
