Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty.

But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel. § [God] said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God. § “To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One. § I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior… I, even I, am the Lord, and besides Me there is no savior.

As He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” § Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? § You are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” § Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?

They constrained Him, saying, “Abide with us.”

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me § Tell me, O you whom I love, where you feed your flock, where you make it rest at noon. For why should I be as one who veils herself by the flocks of your companions? § I found the one I love. I held him and would not let him go.

Let my beloved come to his garden and eat its pleasant fruits. § I have come to my garden. § I did not say to the seed of Jacob, “Seek Me in vain.”

Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. § I will never leave you nor forsake you. § Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them. § The world will see Me no more, but you will see Me.
