Christ, of all my hopes the ground,
Christ, the spring of all my joy,
Still in you may I be found,
Still for you my pow'rs employ,
Still for you my pow'rs employ.
Let your love my heart inflame;
Keep your fear before my sight;
Be your praise my highest aim;
Your glory my chief delight,
Your glory my chief delight.
Fountain of o'erflowing grace,
Freely from your fullness give;
Till I close my earthly race,
May I prove it "Christ to live,"
May I prove it "Christ to live.”
Firmly trusting in your blood,
Nothing shall my heart confound
Safely I shall pass the flood,
Safely reach Immanuel's ground,
Safely reach Immanuel’s ground.
When my last breath comes to give
And my body down I lie
Having known it "Christ to live,”
Let me know it "gain to die,"
Let me know it "gain to die.”
