His Kingdom

8.7.4.

1
’Tis to Thee we owe allegiance,
God our Saviour and our King.
May we render true obedience;
Every day our tribute bring;
And with rapture
Of Thy love and glory sing.

2
May we bow to Thy dominion,
Yielding to Thy righteous sway;
Careless of the world’s opinion,
May we all Thy will obey.
Saviour, lead us,
Lead us in the perfect way.

3
Thine is greatness never wasting,
High Thou art, with glory crowned;
Thine a kingdom everlasting,
Grace and truth Thy throne surround;
While all others
Vanish and no more are found.

4
Happy they whom Thou dost govern;
Great their peace, their honour great;
Thee beholding, Thee their sovereign,
Thee enthroned in royal state;
Happy people!
Who before Thee ever wait.
