AGH 189

Verse 1

Jesus, our hope, our heart's desire,
Thy work of grace we sing;
Redeemer of the world art thou,
Its Maker and its King.

Verse 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!

Verse 3

But now the bonds of death are burst;
The ransom has been paid;
And thou art on thy Father's throne,
In majesty arrayed.

Verse 4

Jesus, our only joy be thou,
As thou our prize wilt be;
In thee be all our glory now,
And through eternity.

Verse 5

All praise to thee who art gone up
Triumphantly to heaven;
All praise to God the Father's Name
And Holy Ghost be given.
