O Father, You Are Sovereign

  1. O Father, You are sovereign
    In all the worlds You made;
    Your mighty Word was spoken,
    And light and life obeyed.
    Your voice commands the seasons
    And bounds the ocean’s shore,
    Sets stars within their courses
    And stills the tempests’ roar.

  2. O Father, You are sovereign
    In all affairs of man;
    No pow’rs of death or darkness
    Can thwart Your perfect plan.
    All chance and change transcending,
    Supreme in time and space,
    You hold your trusting children
    Secure in Your embrace.

  3. O Father, You are sovereign
    The Lord of human pain,
    Transmuting earthly sorrows
    To gold of heav’nly gain,
    All evil overruling,
    As none but Conqu’ror could,
    Your love pursues its purpose—
    Our souls’ eternal good.

  4. O Father, You are sovereign!
    We see You dimly now,
    But soon before Your triumph
    Earth’s every knee shall bow.
    With this glad hope before us
    Our faith springs forth anew:
    Our Sovereign Lord and Savior,
    We trust and worship You!
