O King Eternal

O King Eternal upon your throne,
___ extend your scepter that I may hold
___ your favor tightly and be bold
in your presence and not bemoan
my plight as if I were alone.

Hear my night cries, defiant lies
___ I tell myself when I’m undone.
___ Meet them with your truth, cast the stone
the Christ, the King to circumcise
my heart, my mind, no compromise.

Subsume my will, engulf my all
___ until ev’ry part of me dies
___ and to my soul, Christ, his life supplies,
my affections, his beauty enthrall
and his kingdom, my only call.
