IId HYMN to CHRIST the King.

1 JESU, Thou art our King,
2 To Me thy Succour bring.
3 CHRIST the Mighty One art Thou,
4 Help for All on Thee is laid:
5 This the Word; I claim it Now,
6 Send me now the Promis'd Aid.
7 High on thy Father's Throne,
8 O look with Pity down!
9 Help, O help! attend my Call,
10 Captive lead Captivity,
11 King of Glory, Lord of All,
12 CHRIST, be Lord, be King to Me!
13 I pant to feel thy Sway
14 And only Thee t' obey.
15 Thee my Spirit gasps to meet,
16 This my one, my ceaseless Pray'r,
17 Make, O make my Heart thy Seat,
18 O set up thy Kingdom there!
[Page 175]
19 Triumph and reign in Me,
20 And spread thy Victory:
21 Hell and Death, and Sin controul,
22 Pride, and Self, and ev'ry Foe,
23 All subdue; thro' all my Soul
24 Conqu'ring and to conquer go.
