O Christ, thou Anchor of my soul, Blest Bread from heaven, like manna given, My Comforter and Cornerstone, Defender, when I stand alone— Eternal Life, I give the whole, My mind and feelings, flesh and soul.
O Christ, Thou Friend to faithless men Great God so glorious, on earth victorious, Our Helper and our Healing One, I come to Thee, Incarnate Son, And joy to know Thee as I can: The Justifier of all men.
O King of kings, in light enshrined, Though Lord, yet lowly, a Monarch holy, Yet Thou art merciful and mild; Unworthy as Thy feeble child, In Thee, Name o’er all names combined, An Offering complete I find.
What perfect Prince of Peace Thou art! Quench wrong ambition and make me listen To quiet queries of Thy wind; Restore my soul when I have sinned; Reign Thou, Redeemer, in my heart, That from Thy rule I would not part!
O Sun most bright, Thou Source of love, Salvation’s story glows with Thy glory; Teacher of truth and testament, Unfold to me Thy covenant: Thou Unction of the God above, Unloose Thy shoe and seal my love!
Veil rent for me, Thy vict’ry’s won! I view with wonder and daily ponder Thy wisdom, for Thou art the Word, Expressing all of God the Lord; Teach me Thy meekness, Yielded Son; Temper my zeal, O Zealous One!
