Jesu, Thou art our King,
To me Thy succour bring.
-Hymn to Christ the King-
         Jesu, Thou art our King,
         To me Thy succour bring.
Christ the mighty One art Thou,
      Help for all on Thee is laid:
This the word; I claim it now,
      Send me now the promised aid.
         High on Thy Father’s throne,
         O, look with pity down!
Help, O, help! attend my call,
      Captive lead captivity;
King of glory, Lord of all,
      Christ, be Lord, be King to me!
         I pant to feel Thy sway,
         And only Thee to’ obey.
Thee my spirit gasps to meet;
      This my one, my ceaseless prayer,
Make, O, make my heart Thy seat;
      O, set up Thy kingdom there!
         Triumph and reign in me,
         And spread thy victory:
Hell and death and sin control,
      Pride, and self, and every foe,
All subdue; through all my soul
      Conquering and to conquer go.
