O Holy Lord, most Holy Lord, You must be wholly Lord of me.
Where there are corners of my heart that it’s still night to me,
I want no shadows in my heart, please shine Your Light through me.

O Holy Lord, Most Holy Lord, You must be wholly Lord of me.
When any sound within my mind drowns out Your whispered will,
I want no clamor in my mind, please bid it “Peace, be still.”

O Holy Lord, most Holy Lord, You must be wholly Lord of me.
If You’re not Lord of all, I’ve heard it said,
Then You’re not Lord at all and this I dread.
O my Lord, my Holy Lord, You must be wholly Lord of me.
Oh, please be wholly Lord of me.

If there is ought within my soul that bars You, Lord, at all,
I want no barriers in my soul, so please now make them fall.
O Holy Lord, most Holy Lord, You must be wholly Lord of me.
O Holy Lord, be wholly Lord of me.
