God Almighty, in Thy temple

God Almighty, in Thy temple

Full Text

1 God Almighty, in thy temple
Low before Thy throne we bow;
From Thy dwelling-place in glory
Hear our supplications now,
While we offer
Earnest prayer and solemn vow.

2 Christ our Savior, Thou Who carest
For the youngest of Thy fold,
Give us now Thy heavenly blessing,
As Thou didst in days of old;
Priceless treasure,
Richer far than gems or gold.

3 God the Holy Ghost, be near us;
Ever dwell our hearts within;
Keep them pure, and brave, and earnest,
Give us grace to conquer sin,
And through Jesus,
Heaven's eternal crown to win.

4 Holy Trinity, defend us
In a world with evil rife;
Let Thine angel-guards surround us
In each sore and bitter strife:
Oh, preserve us
Unto everlasting life!
