Days of Judah, days of sunshine, Lion strong, come be my light.
Holy King, Beauteous Lord, Dearest God, be my delight.
Take my hands and take my dreams; be the One who cradles me.
Stand before me, guard behind me, be the eyes through which I see:
Holy keeper, Most High ruler, take my will and be my might.
Cow my hatred, quiet my dread, strike my rage and lift my head.
Holy ruler, tender lover, ride to battle in my stead.
Though I bolt and though I clamour; rein this heart lest she know less
Than endless valour, endless truth, endless love and righteousness.
Break me in, heart-whisperer. Be my master, be my bread.
