Lo, God is here! Him day and night
LO, God is here! Let us adore,
Heaven's hosts their noblest praises bring.
And own how dreadful is this place; Disdain not, Lord, our meaner song,
And silent bow before his face.
Still may we stand before thy face,
GERHARD TErsteegen, 1697-1769.
HEINRICH CHRISTOPH ZEUNER, 1795-1857.
All space is holy, for all space
Is filled by thee; but human thought Burns clearer in some chosen place,
Nor we alone may those whose brow
Shows yet no trace of human cares, Hereafter stand where we do now,
Where thine own words of love are taught. And raise to thee still holier prayers!
ANDREWS NORTON, 1786-1853.
Till death the gates of heaven unfold!
