Representative Text

2 Jesus, Thou art my King,
To me Thy succor bring;
Christ the mighty One art Thou,
Help for all on Thee is laid;
This Thy promise claim I now,
Send me down the promised aid.

3 Triumph and reign in me,
And spread Thy victory;
Sin, and death, and hell control,
Pride, and self, and ever foe—
All subdue, through all my soul
Conquering and to conquer go.
