3. Lord Jesus Christ, Be Present Now

1 Lord Jesus Christ, be present now,
Our hearts in true devotion bow,
Thy Spirit send with grace divine,
And let Thy truth within us shine.

2 Unseal our lips to sing Thy praise,
Our souls to Thee in worship raise,
Make strong 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 in the light of that blest place
Fore'er behold Thee fact to face.

4 Glory to God the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One!
To Thee, O bless├Ęd Trinity,
Be praise throughout eternity!

Amen.
