Hymn Monday - "O Christ, Our Hope, Our Hearts' Desire"

Today's hymn, "O Christ, Our Hope, Our Hearts' Desire" (#553), is from the "Lutheran Service Book" (c) 2006 Concordia Publishing House.

O Christ, our hope, our hearts' desire,
Creation's mighty Lord,
Redeemer of the fallen world,
By holy love outpoured:
How vast Your mercy to accept
The burden of our sin
And bow Your head in cruel death
To make us clean within.
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.
O let Your mighty love prevail
To purge us of our pride
That we may stand before Your throne
By mercy purified.
Christ Jesus, be our present joy,
Our future great reward;
Our only glory, may it be
To glory in the Lord!
All praise to You, ascended Lord;
All glory ever be
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Through all eternity!
Jesu Juva,
Soli Deo Gloria
