O Christ our hope our hearts' desire




O Christ, our Hope,
our heartís Desire,
Redemptionís only Spring!
Creator of the world art Thou,
|:Its Savior and its King. :|


How vast the mercy and the love
Which laid our sins on Thee,
And led Thee to a cruel death,
|:To set Thy people free. :|


But now the bands
of death are burst,
The ransom has been paid,
And Thou art on Thy Fatherís throne,
|:In glorious robes arrayed. |:


O may Thy mighty love prevail
Our sinful souls to spare;
O may we come before Thy throne,
|:And find acceptance there! :|


O Christ, be Thou our lasting Joy,
Our ever great Reward!
Our only glory may be it be
|:To glory in the Lord. :|


All praise to Thee, ascended Lord;
All glory ever be
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
|:Through all eternity. :|
