Hymn Text

1 O Christ, our hope, our hearts' desire, Creation's mighty Lord,
Redeemer of the fallen world,
By holy love outpoured, By holy love outpoured:

2 How vast your mercy to accept The burden of our sin,
And bow your head in cruel death
To make us clean within, To make us clean within.

3 But now the bonds of death are burst, The ransom has been paid;
You now ascend the Father's throne
In robes of light arrayed, In robes of light arrayed.

4 Oh, let your mighty love prevail To purge us of our pride,
That we may stand before your throne
By mercy purified, By mercy purified.

5 Christ Jesus, be our present joy, Our future great reward;
Our only glory, may it be
To glory in the Lord! To glory in the Lord! 

6 All praise to you, ascended Lord; All glory ever be
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Through all eternity! Through all eternity!
