304. Come, Jesus, Reign in Me

1 For perfect love I long have groaned,
I would be wholly Thine;
Yes, I would have the Lord enthroned
In this poor heart of mine.

Refrain:
Come, Jesus, reign in me,
My heart Thy throne shall be;
Oh, tarry in Thy throne,
’Tis Thine, and Thine alone.

2 All foes cast out, let this poor heart
Be filled with love divine;
Securely fixed, no more to part
From this poor heart of mine. [Refrain]

3 Let perfect love my portion be,
To Thee my all resign;
O Holy One, come dwell in me,
And rule this heart of mine. [Refrain]

4 No earthly language can express
The love in Christ I find
’Tis boundless and it’s measureless,
In this poor heart of mine. [Refrain]
