    Be still, for the presence of the Lord

    Be still, for the presence of the Lord, the holy One, is here;
    come bow before him now with reverence and fear.
    In Him no sin is found, we stand on holy ground.
    Be still, for the presence of the Lord, the holy One, is here.

    Be still, for the glory of the Lord is shining all around;
    he burns with holy fire, with splendour he is crowned.
    How awesome is the sight - our radiant King of light.
    Be still, for the glory of the Lord is shining all around.

    Be still, for the power of the Lord is moving in this place:
    he comes to cleanse and heal, to minister his grace-
    no work to hard for him, in faith receive from him.
    Be still, for the power of the Lord is moving in this place.

    I can't blame you Ben! I like what I'm reading too! I checked Cyber Hymnal for the music to go along with the words, would love to hear how its played.~ I just got blessed yesterday with a simular song it was written in 1891.

    Breathe Upon Us

    Breathe upon us, Lord, from Heaven,
    Fill us with the Holy Ghost;
    Promise of the Father given,
    Send us now a Pentecost.

    Refrain:
    Breathe upon us, breathe upon us,
    With Thy love our hearts inspire.
    Breathe upon us, breathe upon us,
    Lord, baptize us now with fire.


    While the Spirit hovers o’er us,
    Open all our hearts, we pray;
    To Thine image, Lord, restore us,
    Witness in our souls today.

    Refrain:

    Lift us, Lord, O lift us higher,
    From the carnal mind set free;
    Fill us with refining fire,
    Give us perfect liberty.

    Refrain:

    I've been personally moved by several new hymns... at least new to me... over the last few weeks. This is one of my favorites:

    DEAR REFUGE OF MY WEARY SOUL
    Anne Steele

    Dear refuge of my weary soul,
    On Thee, when sorrows rise;
    On Thee, when waves of trouble roll,
    My fainting hope relies.
    To Thee I tell each rising grief,
    For Thou alone canst heal;
    Thy Word can bring a sweet relief,
    For every pain I feel.

    But oh! When gloomy doubts prevail,
    I fear to call Thee mine,
    The springs of comfort seem to fail,
    And all my hopes decline.
    Yet gracious God, where shall I flee?
    Thou art my only trust,
    And still my soul would cleave to Thee
    Though prostrate in the dust.

    Hast Thou not bid me seek Thy face,
    And shall I seek in vain?
    And can the ear of sovereign grace,
    Be deaf when I complain?
    No still the ear of sovereign grace,
    Attends the mourner’s prayer,
    Oh may I ever find access,
    To breathe my sorrows there.

    Thy mercy seat is open still,
    Here let my soul retreat,
    With humble hope attend Thy will,
    And wait beneath Thy feet,
    Thy mercy seat is open still,
    Here let my soul retreat,
    With humble hope attend Thy will,
    And wait beneath Thy feet.
