I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit.@Isaiah 57:15

God dwells in Heaven: He rules above,
In everlasting might,
Beyond where stars their courses move,
In uncreated light.

God dwells in hell: His vengeance there
Gleams through the black abode;
The realms of anguish and despair
Confess the present God.

God dwells on earth; and all around
We view His wondrous power;
His terrors in the thunder sound,
His mercies in the shower.

When man erects a house of prayer,
There God resides within,
To witness every feeling there,
And pardon every sin.

But most of all the Lord resides
Within a humble mind;
The worth that modest merit hides
His grace is sure to find.

By pious men He may be found,
And everywhere adored;
Where’er they tread is holy ground,
A temple to the Lord.

O, let me find Thee everywhere—
Around me, and within!
Be every day a day of prayer,
And pure from every sin.
