1 O God, unseen yet ever near,
Thy presence may we feel;
And thus inspired with holy fear,
Before Thine altar kneel.
2 Here may Thy faithful people know
The blessings of Thy love,
The streams that through the desert flow,
The manna from above.
3 We come, obedient to Thy word,
To feast on heavenly food;
Our meat the Body of the Lord,
Our drink his precious Blood.
4 Thus may we all Thy word obey,
For we, O God, are Thine;
And go rejoicing on our way,
Renewed with strength divine.
Amen.The Hymnal: revised and enlarged as adopted by the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America in the year of our Lord 1892
