Not alone on rugged mountains
May we worship God the Lord;
Not alone in templed city
May the Father be adored.


We may worship Him in spirit
Anywhere today.
Never from the souls who seek Him
Will He turn away.

Jesus said, The hour is coming,
Yea, is even now at hand
When true souls devoutly worship
God, the Lord, in every land.


If we bow in truth and spirit
Humbly now before His throne,
He who seeketh such to worship
Will receive us as His own.
