Head of the Church Thy body O Christ




Head of the Church, Thy body,
O Christ, the great salvation,
Sweet to the saints
It is to think
Of all Thine exaltation;
All power's to Thee committed,
All power on earth, in heaven;
To Thee a name
Of widest fame
Above all glory's given.


With Thee believers raised
In Thee on high are seated;
All guilty once,
But cleared by Thee;
Redemption-toil completed.
And when Thou, Lord and Saviour,
Shalt come again in glory,
There by Thy side
Thy spotless bride
Shall crown the wondrous story.


At length, the final kingdom
No bound, no end possessing,
When heaven and earth
God all in all
Shall fill with largest blessing:
All root of evil banished;
No breath of sin to wither;
On earth, on high,
Nought else but joy
And blissful peace for ever.
