Lyrics

God is in His holy temple,
Earthly thoughts be silent now,
While with reverence we assemble,
And before His presence bow.

He is with us now and ever,
When we call upon His name,
Aiding every good endeavor,
Guiding every upward aim.

Then let every low emotion
Banished far and silent be,
And our souls in pure devotion,
Lord, be temples worthy Thee!
