God is in his temple

God is in his temple,
the almighty Father;
round his footstool let us gather:
him with adoration
serve, the Lord most holy,
who has 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.
Now from sin delivered,
he has 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 your temple,
gracious Holy Spirit,
in our hearts your home inherit;
make in us your dwelling,
your high work fulfilling,
into ours your will instilling;
till we raise
hymns of praise,
past all mortal telling,
in the eternal temple.
