Live in the presence of God

Fearless, exiled from all
Unscrupulous foes, surround
One thing desired, above all else
A simple place of peace
Beyond a city, where unscrupulous foes
Abide,

Live in the presence of God
In God’s house, we may live day by day

We are in God’s light,
No sun or candle needed
We are in God’s light

Though we know it not
Our eyes are opened
To see where we are

God who made the world
So fair, yet triumph
Changes to sadness
Sometimes God hides from us
In abandonment our soul reaches out to
Our Redeemer, who controls the wind and waves
God draws us to him in trust, gathering us from exile
