Lord Jesus Christ, Be Present Now
attr. to Duke William II of Saxe-Weimar, 1651; German text
|Lord Jesus Christ, be present now,|
Our hearts in true devotion bow,
Thy Spirit send with grace divine,
And let Thy truth within us shine.
2. Unseal our lips to sing Thy praise,
|3. Until we join the hosts that cry,|
"Holy art Thou, O Lord, most high!"
And in the light of that blest place
Fore'er behold Thee face to face.
4. Glory to God the Father, Son,
