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