Lyrics

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.
