God in his temple let us meet:
Low on our knees before Him bend,
Here hath He fix'd his Mercy-seat,
Here on his worship we attend.
Arise into thy resting-place,
Thou, and thine ark of strength, O Lord!
Shine through the veil, we seek Thy face;
Speak, for we hearken to Thy word.
With righteousness Thy priests array;
Joyful Thy chosen people be;
Let those who teach, and hear, and pray,
Let all be Holiness to Thee!
Sacred Poems and Hymns
God in His temple let us meet. J. Montgomery. [Ps. cxxxii.] Appeared in Cotterill's Selection, 1819, p. 74, in 4 stanzas of 8 lines. In the revised edition of 1820, lines 1-12 were given instead of the full text of the previous edition, thus making a hymn in 3 stanzas of 4 lines. This was repeated in Montgomery's Songs of Zion, 1822, as No. 1 of Ps. 132, and the rest of the Cotterill text of 1819 as No. 2, beginning, "Lord, for Thy servant David's sake." Pt. i. was also included in his Original Hymns, 1853, No. 101. Both parts are in common use as separate hymns, but the first is found in the greater number of hymn books.
