491. To Christ, the Prince of Peace

1 To Christ, the Prince of peace,
And Son of God most high,
The father of the world to come,
Sing we with holy joy.

2 Deep in his heart for us
The wound of love he bore,
That love with which he still inflames
The hearts that him adore.

3 O Jesus, victim blest,
What else but love so fine
Could make you choose to open thus
That sacred heart divine?

4 O Fount of endless life,
O Spring of water clear,
O Flame celestial, cleansing all
Who unto you draw near!
