1 Lord Jesus Christ, be present now,
our hearts in true devotion bow,
your Spirit send with grace divine,
and let your truth within us shine.
2 Unseal our lips to sing your praise,
our souls to you in worship raise,
make strong our faith, increase our light
that we may know your name aright:
3 Until we join the hosts that cry,
"Holy are you, O Lord, Most High!"
And in the light of that blest place
fore'er behold thee face to face.
4 Glory to God the Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit, Three in One!
To you, O blessed Trinity,
be praise throughout eternity!
