1 Make room within my heart, O God,
that you may form in me
the image you have shown in Christ,
my very life to be.
Inspire my thought, O lofty One,
to reach the highest plane,
that I may know the mind of Christ,
and him as greatest gain.
2 Direct my will, O King of kings,
subject it to your own,
that every impulse, action, word,
may make your kingdom known.
Effect my prayer, great Trinity,
combine each part of me to praise
the Father, Spirit, Son.
