Hymn/Song Information

Jesus our hope our heart's desire




Jesus, our hope, our heart's 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 Father's 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!


Jesus, 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 heaven;
all praise to God the Father's Name
and Holy Ghost be given.
