Christ, Of All My Hopes the Ground

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.”
