Lyrics

King Jesus reigns within my heart,
He’s my Lord;
For Him I did with all things part,
He’s my Lord.

Refrain

He’s the Lily of the Valley,
Yes, my Lord;
He’s the White Rose of Sharon,
Yes, my Lord.

He took away my shame and sin,
He’s my Lord;
And made me clean and white within,
He’s my Lord.

Refrain

He now has taken full control,
He’s my Lord;
For He has sanctified my soul,
He’s my Lord.

Refrain

No mortal can with Him compare,
He’s my Lord;
He is the fairest of the fair,
He’s my Lord.

Refrain

His voice now charms me all the day,
He’s my Lord;
He drives all doubt and fear away,
He’s my Lord.
