You, O Lord, are source and center,
Let me in your portals enter;
Walk with me the straight and narrow,
Watch with care your smallest sparrow.
You, O God, are shield and savior,
Rock and tower, loving neighbor;
Life and blessing yours forever,
Faithfulness our long endeavor.
Heavenly Father, you are holy,
Jesus Christ, the meek and lowly;
Lord of lords, our power and wisdom,
King of kings, eternal kingdom.
Come, O Son, your saints are waiting,
For your coming we are praying;
Every day the Victor’s nearing,
Hasten now your loud appearing.
Here below, O Man of Sorrow,
We await the glad tomorrow,
Calling all to full repentance,
Joyous in your glorious presence.
