Christ of all my hopes the Ground Christ the




Christ, of all my hopes the Ground;
Christ, the Spring of all my joy;
Still in Thee may I be found,
|:Still for Thee my powers employ:|


Let Thy love my heart inflame;
Keep Thy fear before my sight;
Be Thy praise my highest aim;
|:Be Thy smile my chief delight:|


When affliction clouds my sky,
And the wintry tempests blow,
Let Thy mercy beaming eye
|:Sweetly cheer the night of woe:|


When new triumphs of Thy Name
Swell the raptured songs above,
May I feel a kindred flame,
|:Full of zeal, and full of love!:|


Life’s best joy, to see Thy praise
Fly on wings of Gospel light,
Leading on millennial days,
|:Scattering all the shades of night!:|


Fountain of overflowing grace,
Freely from Thy fullness give;
Till I close my earthly race,
|:May I prove it “Christ to live!:|


When, with wasting sickness worn,
Sinking to the grave I lie,
Or, by sudden anguish torn,
|:Startled nature dreads to die:|


Jesus, my redeeming Lord,
Be Thou then in mercy near!
Let Thy smile of love afford
|:Full relief from all my fear:|


Firmly trusting in Thy blood,
Nothing shall my heart confound;
Safely I shall pass the flood,
|:Safely reach Emmanuel’s ground:|


When I touch the blesséd shore,
Back the closing waves shall roll;
Death’s dark stream shall never more
|:Part from Thee my ravished soul:|


Thus, O thus, an entrance give
To the land of cloudless sky;
Having known it “Christ to live,”
|:Let me know it “gain to die.”:|


---Alternative verses---


Christ, of all my hopes the Ground;
Christ, the Spring of all my joy;
Still in Thee let me be found,
|:Still for Thee my powers employ:|


Fountain of overflowing grace,
Freely from Thy fullness give;
Till I close my earthly race,
|: Be it “Christ for me to live!:|
