1. He is not far from every one of us,
His power and wisdom shine from peak and plain.
The vaulted heav’ns outstretch a starlit fane,
Where hearts, where praiseful hearts may worship Him.

Oh! praise His name since He is near today,
Let whispered praise declare love’s holy fear;
Let daily service speak the heart’s full cheer,
The Lord is ours, the Lord is ours,
He is not far away.

2. He is not far from every one of us,
Our bodies temples are our souls that praise;
Declare His presence all our varied ways,
Where wandering, striving, we may follow Him. [Refrain]

3. He is not far from every one of us,
He nearer is than breath or feet or hands;
He dearer is than friend or home or lands,
The spirit’s fount of joy, our soul’s deep spring. [Refrain]
