1.	O Christ, our hope, our heart's desire, 
	Redemption's only spring, 
	Creator of the world art Thou, 
	Its Savior and its King. 

2.	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. 

3.	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. 

4.	O Christ, be Thou our lasting joy, 
	Our ever great reward; 
	Our only glory may it be 
	To glory in the Lord!
