I sought for love and strength and light

I sought for love and strength and light

Representative Text

I SOUGHT for love and strength and light,
For grace and power to win the fight;
And prayed that Christ would come in might
Within my heart to reign.

2 I saw the treasure I might win,
Freedom from self, from inbred sin;
A holy fire to burn within,
If Christ came in to reign.

3 O wondrous change, there’s victory within,
All fear cast out, the soul kept clean;
Joy, peace and rest, and hatred of sin,
Now Christ has come to reign.

4 Now Christ is King, my heart his throne,
He reigns in love, he reigns alone;
O wondrous grace that he should come,
King of my heart to reign.
