Sabbath eve hymn

This hymn by William Henry Furness:

The Temple of the Heart

To the Truth that makes us free,
To the Light that leads to Thee
We this hour would dedicate.
And thy blessings, Lord, await.

Canst Thou be approached by men?
Angels and archangels, when
God His brightness on them sheds,
Veils their faces, bow their heads.

Yet we know, O God, Thou art
Present in the lowly heart;
There will He descend and reign.
Whom the heavens cannot contain.

In our hearts Thy temple rear;
Show us, God, Thy glory there;
Fill us with that light divine,
Which shall make all places Thine.

Have a blessed sabbath.
