Lord, we are weary, even so,
With You we can prevail.
Yet we cannot Your glory know
Unless You lift the veil.
You have established all the lands.
This world speaks out Your fame.
The wind You gather in Your hands.
We praise Your mighty Name.
The Word of God contains no flaw,
Deep wisdom from on high.
It stands complete, you can be sure
And on its truth rely.
Take refuge in the work of Christ
And by His blood be healed.
For all who trust this sacrifice
Can make the Lord their shield.
Two things we ask to help us stay
And follow where You lead:
Keep lies and falsehood far away;
Give only what we need.
If riches are our path in life
We may disown our Lord.
But if You pave our way with strife,
Keep us from theft and fraud.
So let the people that we meet
See where our treasure lies.
This world with Christ cannot compete,
He is the greatest prize.
Let go of every earthly thing,
His glory make your goal.
Join with us now, to praise the King
Who died to save your soul.

Tune: Vox Dilecti - John Bacchus Dykes (1823 - 1876)
Preferred tune is Kingsfold, an English melody collected by Lucy Broadwood (1858 - 1929) and harmonised and arranged by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872 - 1958) but I need to investigate copyright.
