HYMN CVII.

8.7.8.7.4.7

James Montgomery

For the great Congregation.

God is in His holy temple,

All the earth keep silence here;

Worship Him in truth and spirit,

Reverence Him with godly fear;

Holy, holy,

Lord of Hosts, our Lord, appear.

God in Christ reveals His presence,

Throned upon the Mercy-seat:

Saints, rejoice! and sinners, tremble!

Each prepare his God to meet:

Lowly, lowly,

Bow adoring at His feet.

Hail Him here with songs of praises,

Him with prayers of faith surround;

Hearken to His glorious gospel,

While the preacher's lips expound;

Blesséd, blesséd,

They who know the joyful sound.

Though the heaven, and heaven of heavens,

O Thou Great Unsearchable!

Are too mean to comprehend Thee,

Thou with man art pleased to dwell;

Welcome, welcome,

God with us, Immanuel.
