God is in His temple

Sung during the Sunday worship at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London (Spurgeon’s).

Hymn 157 from our hymn book, Psalms & Hymns of Reformed Worship.

GOD is in His temple,
The almighty Father,
Round His footstool let us gather:
Him with adoration
Serve, the Lord most holy,
Who has mercy on the lowly;
Let us raise
Hymns of praise
For His great salvation:
God is in His temple!

Christ comes to His temple:
We, His Word receiving,
Are made happy in believing.
Lo! from sin delivered,
He has turned our sadness,
Our deep gloom, to light and gladness!
Let us raise
Hymns of praise,
For our bonds are severed:
Christ comes to His temple!

Come and claim Thy temple,
Gracious Holy Spirit!
In our hearts Thy home inherit:
Make in us Thy dwelling,
Thy high work fulfilling,
Into ours Thy will instilling,
Till we raise
Hymns of praise
Beyond mortal telling,
In the eternal temple.
