God, the blessed and on­ly Rul­er,
Rule my heart to­day.
You’re the King of kings for­ev­er;
O’er my life hold sway.

Lord of lords, be now my Mas­ter;
Gladly I’ll ob­ey.
You’re im­mor­tal and eter­nal;
Hear my pray­er to­day.

Lord, You live in light so bril­liant,
None can see Your face.
Shine Your light with­in my heart now;
Cleanse me by Your grace.

Lord, to You be hon­or, glo­ry,
Now and with­out end;
May Your migh­ty power con­trol
My life each day.
