O Great God of highest Heaven,
occupy my lowly heart;
own it all and reign supreme,
conquer every rebel power;
let no vice or sin remain
that resists your holy war,
you have loved and purchased me,
make me yours forevermore.
I was blinded by my sin,
had no ears to hear your voice;
did not know your love within,
had no taste for Heaven’s joys;
then your Spirit gave me life,
opened up your Word to me;
through the gospel of your Son,
gave me endless hope and peace.
Help me now to live a life
that’s dependent on your grace;
keep my heart and guard my soul
from the evils that I face;
you are worthy to be praised
with my every thought and deed;
O Great God of highest Heaven
glorify your name through me.
