Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But the words and guitar chords are currently available on this website.

The song has two verses, and a four-line chorus which is sung after each verse. A rough outline of the English-language version is:
1. Here in this time, here in this place,
.... And we cry:

Chorus: "
Holy! Holy! Holy are you!”
We cry: .... Our God is here.

2. Here in the Word, God is revealed,
... And we cry:

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY 1. Here in this time, here in this place,
here we are standing face to face.
Here in our hearts, here in our lives,
our God is here.
Here for the broken, here for the strong,
here in this temple we belong.
Here in our hearts, here in our lives,
our God is here.
And we cry:

Chorus:
“Holy! Holy! Holy are you!”
We cry: “Holy! Holy! Holy and true!”
Amen, we do believe our God is here.
Our God is here.

2. Here in the Word, God is revealed,
here where the wounded can be healed.
Here in our hearts, here in our lives,
our God is here.
Here we become what we receive,
here in this Eucharistic feast.
We are his body, living as one;
our God is here.
And we cry:
