Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

4. God Himself is Present

1 God Himself is present:
Let us now adore Him
And with awe appear before Him.
God is in His temple—
All within keep silence,
Prostrate lie with deepest rev'rence.
Him alone
God we own,
Him, our God and Savior;
Praise His name forever.

2 God himself is present:
Hear the harps resounding;
See the hosts the throne surrounding!
"Holy, holy, holy"—
Hear the hymn ascending,
Songs of saints and angels blending.
Bow thine ear
To us here:
Hear, O Christ, the praises
That Thy Church now raises.

3 O Thou Fount of blessing,
Purify my spirit,
Trusting only in Thy merit.
Like the holy angels,
Who behold Thy glory,
May I ceaselessly adore Thee.
Let Thy will
Ever still
Rule Thy Church terrestrial
As the hosts celestial.

Amen.
