613. God Is in His Temple

1 God is in his temple,
the almighty Father;
round his footstool
let us gather;
him with adoration serve,
the Lord most holy,
who hath mercy on the lowly;
let us raise hymns of praise
for his great salvation:
God is in his temple!

2 Christ comes to his temple,
we, his word receiving,
are made happy in believing;
lo! from sin delivered
he hath turned our sadness,
our deep gloom to light and gladness;
let us raise hymns of praise,
for our bonds are severed:
Christ comes to his temple.

3 Come and claim thy temple,
gracious Holy Spirit;
in our hearts thy home inherit;
make in us thy dwelling,
thy high work fulfilling,
into ours thy will instilling,
till we raise hymns of praise
beyond mortal telling,
in th'eternal temple.
