Viva Cristo Rey

Image: Andrea Leopardi

On trembling knees
I offer thee my King
no price of gold
of studded ring
no fragrant oil
from merchants old
no bounty harvest
of my father’s soil

Behold my King
This servant chaste, possess
Thy Sacred Heart
Queen Mother’s blest

With steady hands
and beads and twine
to praise and serve
Thy Majesty Divine

And if beads do count each Hail Mary
Then my King, my Savior, all Glory Be!
