554. God Reveals His Presence

1 God reveals his presence
let us now adore him
and with awe appear before him.
God is in His temple,
all in us keep silence
and before him bow with reverence.
Him alone God we own;
he’s our Lord and Savior.
Praise his name forever.

2 God reveals his presence,
whom th'angelic legions
serve with awe in heav’nly regions.
Holy, Holy, Holy!
Sing the hosts of heaven;
praise to God be ever given.
Bow your ear to us here:
Hear, O Christ, the praises
that your church now raises.

3 O Majestic Being,
may our souls and bodies
at all times be at your service!
Like the holy angels
who bow down before you,
may we ceaselessly adore you,
and through grace,
Jesus' grace,
in our whole demeanor,
offer praise and honor.
