Lyrics:

Beloved, you who guard and guide and give for every need,
reign in my heart, O Sovereign Christ; direct each thought and deed.


O Sovereign Love, my root, my sun, my purpose and my peace,
I spurn the world’s vain, anxious rule, and trust your Law of Grace.


The Empire of your justice, God, with mercy’s clear command
shall be my home; my loyalty is to no lesser land.


In humble and obedient thanks I pledge my life to you,
to join your work of justice, God, to make the world anew.


Reign in my heart, O Christ, my Rule. In faith I am compelled
to serve you, who by love alone have conquered all the world.
