Hymn/Song Information

To Christ the Prince of peace And Son




To Christ, the Prince of peace,
And Son of God most high,
The Father of the world to come,
We lift our joyful cry.


Deep in His heart for us
The wound of love He bore,
That love which He enkindles still
In hearts that Him adore.


O Jesu, Victim blest,
What else but love divine
Could Thee constrain to open thus
That sacred heart of Thine?


O wondrous Fount of love,
O Well of waters free,
O heavenly Flame, refining Fire,
O burning Charity!


Hide us in Thy dear heart,
Jesu, our Savior blest,
So shall we find Thy plenteous grace
And Heavínís eternal rest.


Praise to the Father be,
and sole-begotten Son:
praise, holy Paraclete, to thee
while endless ages run.


---Alternative verses---


To Christ, the Prince of peace,
And Son of God most high,
The Father of the world to come,
sing we with holy joy.


O fount of endless life,
O Spring of waters free,
O Flame celestial, cleansing all,
who unto thee draw near.


Hide us in Thy dear heart,
for thither we do fly;
there seek thy grace through life,
in death their immortality.
