Hymn/Song Information

Eternal Ruler of the ceaseless round




Eternal Ruler of
the ceaseless round
Of circling planets
singing on their way,
Guide of the nations
from the night profound
Into the glory of the perfect day,
Rule in our hearts,
that we may ever be
Guided and strengthened
and upheld by Thee.


We are of Thee,
the children of Thy love,
The brothers of
Thy well belovèd Son;
Descend, O Holy Spirit,
like a dove
Into our hearts,
that we may be as one;
As one with Thee,
to Whom we ever tend;
As one with Him
our Brother and our Friend.


We would be one
in hatred of all wrong,
One in our love
of all things sweet and fair;
One with the joy
that breaketh into song,
One with the grief
that trembleth into prayer,
One in the power
that makes Thy children free
To follow truth,
and thus to follow Thee.


O clothe us with
Thy heavenly armor, Lord,
Thy trusty shield,
Thy sword of love divine;
Our inspiration be
Thy constant Word;
We ask no victories
that are not Thine;
Give or withhold,
let pain or pleasure be,
Enough to know
that we are serving Thee.
