The Lord is Present in His Sanctuary

This is a praise-style hymn, originally written for use in the Charismatic community.  It is based on Psalm 150.

It was written by Gail Cole.  Some,but not all sources list it as © Church of the Messiah.  It has been covered by John Michael Talbot, and others.  There are various versions of the verses:  "sing to", "delight in", love, serve - which may be used in any order.

It was included in Songs of the Spirit - Songs and Hymns of the Renewal published in 1978 the UK by Kevin Mayhew Ltd, and in Cry Hosanna, published in 1980 by Hodder and Stoughton Ltd of Kent, England.  Second-hand copies of these are likely the best sources of sheet music today.

The unnamed tune has a 4/4 time signature.   In the key of Em, first few notes of the melody are B, E E FFFF GA GF_ D B, with accompanying chords Em / D / C / B7.

Lyrics:

The Lord is present in His sanctuary
Let us praise the Lord.
The Lord is present in His people gathered here,
Let us praise the Lord.
Praise Him, praise Him let us praise the Lord.
Praise Him, praise Him let us praise Jesus.

The Lord is present in His sanctuary
Let us sing to the Lord.
The Lord is present in His people gathered here,
Let us sing to the Lord.
Sing to Him, sing to Him let us sing to the Lord.
Sing to Him, sing to Him let us sing to Jesus.

The Lord is present in His sanctuary
Let us serve the Lord.
The Lord is present in His people gathered here,
Let us serve the Lord.
Serve Him, serve Him, let us serve the Lord.
Serve Him, serve Him let us serve Jesus.

The Lord is present in His sanctuary
Let us love the Lord.
The Lord is present in His people gathered here,
Let us love the Lord.
Love Him, love Him, let us love the Lord.
Love Him, love Him, let us love Jesus.
