WITHIN thy house, O Lord, our God,
In glory now appear;
Make us the place of thine abode
And shed thy brightness here.

While we thy mercy seat surround,
Thy spirit, Lord, impart,
And let thy word's all-cheering sound,
With power reach every heart.

Here let the blind their sight obtain;
Here give the mourners rest;
Let Jesus here triumphant reign,
Enthroned in every breast.

Here let the voice of sacred joy
And humble prayer arise,
Till higher strains our tongues employ,
In realms beyond the skies.
