He who fills all Heaven and Earth,
  bore it richness where there was dearth.
To hear saints to your glory sing:
  O Lord, grant me this one small thing!

He whose son died for my own sake
  shall his return to this world make.
Now I wait for that day coming:
  O Lord, grant me this one sure thing!

He who my solemn prayers receive,
  in who I confide and believe.
Your love and grace to my heart cling:
  O Lord, grant me this one dear thing!

He who foretold of toil and strife -
  the promise of eternal life.
Baptism from a heavenly spring:
  O Lord, grant me this one good thing!

He who raised us up from the dust,
  who is merciful, wise, and just.
Peace to this world Your son will bring:
  O Lord, grant me this one true thing!

He whose plan is now close at hand -
  His people in the Promised Land.
Hark inside its walls the bells ring:
  O Lord, grant me this one more thing!

He whose word is written in me
  and whose kingdom I hope to see.
Salvation from my God and King:
  O Lord, grant me this one last thing!
