O great God of highest heaven, occupy my lowly heart;
Own it all and reign supreme, conquer every rebel power.
Let no vice or sin remain that resists Your holy war.
You have loved and purchased me- make me Yours forever more.
I was blinded by my sin, had no ears to hear Your voice;
Did not know Your love within, had no taste for heaven’s joy.
Then Your Spirit gave me life, opened up Your word to me;
Through the gospel of Your Son gave me endless hope and peace.
Help me now to live a life that’s dependent on Your grace;
Keep my heart and guard my soul from the evils that I face.
You are worthy to be praised with my every thought and deed;
O great God of highest heaven, glorify Your name through me.
