Back to Everything Hymnal

God Himself is with us
Words by: Gerhard Tersteegen, 1729
Music by: Joachim Neander, 1680

God himself is with us;
Let us now adore him, And with awe appear before him
God is in his temple, All within keep silence, And before him bow with reverence.
Him alone, God we own; To our Lord and Savior praises sing forever.

God Himself is with us;
Whom angelic legions Serve with awe in heavenly regions.
"Holy, Holy, Holy" Sing the hosts of Heaven, praise to God be ever given
O give ear to us here: Hear, O Christ, the praises that your church now raises

Lord, come dwell within us;
While on earth we tarry; Make us your blest sanctuary.
Grant us now your presence, Unto us draw nearer, And reveal yourself still clearer.
Where we are, near or far, Let us see your power, Every day and Hour.
