Jesus, our hope, our hearts’ desire

Jesus, our hope, our hearts’ desire,
your work of grace we sing;
Redeemer of the world are you,
its maker and its King.

2. How vast the mercy and the grace,
how great the love must be,
which led you to a cruel death
to set your people free!

3. But now the chains of death are burst,
the ransom has been paid,
and you are at your Father’s side
in glorious robes arrayed.

4. O may your mighty love prevail
our sinful souls to spare;
O may we come before your throne
and find acceptance there!

5. O Saviour, be our present joy,
our future great reward;
our only glory may it be
to glory in the Lord.

6. All praise to you, triumphant Lord
ascended high in heaven—
to God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
be praise and glory given!
