Configure swimlanes on story boards to show only open stories ranked by priority order

I have a JIRA board configured to show "Stories" in the dropdown on the swimlanes configuration screen. That works fine, except that I would like to filter out stories that are not "Open" (i.e. "Resolved", etc.), and ideally ranked in priority order.

If I try to use "Queries" as an option with a JQL query like the following

issuetype = Story and status = "Open" order by Rank ASC

the board shows all open stories in one swimlane and everything else in a second swimlane. I want to still see each swimlane as a single story. How can I achieve that?

Modify the board's filter instead, leave the swimlanes set to Story.
