Representative Text

1 Christ, Thou alone art my Lord, and no other
Shall, on the throne of my heart, rival Thee;
Stronger Thy love than the love of a mother,
Deeper Thy peace than the depths of the sea.

2 Christ, Thou alone dost from bondage deliver,
Bringing me freedom and blessèd release;
Crushing the heart—then restoring forever,
Pouring into it the balm of Thy peace.

3 Christ, Thou alone shalt be master and owner;
Thou art the bridegroom, and we are the bride;
Faithful to Thee, to obey and to honor,
Robed as a queen we shall reign at Thy side.

4 Christ, Thou alone into harbor shall guide me,
After the journey forever is o’er;
Safe in Thy glory, no shadow to hide Thee,
Sorrow and sighing shall end evermore.
