Be still

Help! Ever since I read Liz's post about the hymn Be Still, I have had lyrics in my head and I can't remember where they came from. I have the tune and lyrics to this hymn but can't remember where I learnt it!!

The lyrics are:
Be still in the presence of the Lord, the Holy one is here,
Stand ___ before him now, in reverence and fear,
In him no sin is found,
We are on holy ground (??)
etc

And then I get stuck. It's a lovely hymn, but I can't remember the rest of the words - can anyone help me???

Yes, Clare, it stirred memories in me too. I've found:

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.

You Star Shirl!!! Thanks!

We sing it a lot in prison and it awes me (nice verb!) to think that God is in the prison with us. It shouldn't surprise me, knowing Jesus' fondness for sinners, but it's just brilliant.

Oh, impossible verification - letters all italicised and crammed together!
