O Father You are Sovereign

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 still the tempests' roar.

O Father you are sovereign
In all affairs of man
No powers 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.

O Father you are sovereign
The Lord of human pain
Transmuting earthly sorrows
To gold of heavenly gain
All evil overruling
As none but Conqueror could
Your love pursues its purpose
Our souls' eternal good.

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!
