Jesu our Hope our heart's Desire Thy




Jesu, our Hope, our heartís Desire,
Thy work of grace we sing;
Redeemer of the world art Thou,
Its Maker 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 bonds 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 stand around Thy throne,
And see Thy glory there!


Jesu, our only Joy be Thou,
As Thou our Prize wilt be;
In Thee be all our glory now
And through eternity.


All praise to Thee Who art gone up
Triumphantly to Heavín;
All praise to God the Fatherís Name
And Holy Ghost be given.
