     15 Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness! 16 Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD’S right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on thy glory. 17 For the violence of Lebanon shall cover thee, and the spoil of beasts, which made them afraid, because of men’s blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. 18 What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols? 19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it. 20 But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.(KJV)

1. God Himself is present: 
Let us now adore Him 
And with awe appear before Him. 
God is in His temple– 
All within keep silence, 
Prostrate lie with deepest reverence. 
Him alone God we own, 
Him, our God and Savior; 
Praise His name forever. 

2. God Himself is present: 
Hear the harps resounding; 
See the hosts the throne surrounding! 
“Holy, holy, holy”– 
Hear the hymn ascending, 
Songs of saints and angels blending. 
Bow Thine ear To us here: 
Hear, O Christ, the praises 
That Thy Church now raises. 

3. O Thou Fount of blessing, 
Purify my spirit, 
Trusting only in Thy merit. 
Like the holy angels, 
Who behold Thy glory, 
May I ceaselessly adore Thee. 
Let Thy will Ever still 
Rule Thy Church terrestrial 
As the hosts celestial.
