Lord of Light

Lord of Light

Lord of light, with light divine,
Shine upon this heart of mine;
Chase the shades of night away,
Turn the darkness into day.

Lord of power, with power divine,
Cleanse this guilty heart of mine;
Long has sin without control
Held dominion o’er my soul.

Lord of joy, with joy divine,
Cheer this saddened heart of mine;
Bid my many woes depart,
Heal my wounded, bleeding heart.

Lord, the Spirit, all divine,
Dwell within this heart of mine;
Cast down every idol throne,
Reign supreme, and reign alone.

Lyrics: Andrew Reed (1787-1862)
