Author: Ralph Wardlaw Hymnal: The Hymnbook #314 (1955) Meter: 184.108.40.206 Topics: Aspiration; Life in Christ Hope and Aspiration Lyrics: 1 Christ, of all my hopes the Ground,
Christ, the Spring of all my joy,
Still in Thee may I be found,
Still for Thee my powers employ,
Still for Thee my powers employ.
2 Let Thy love my heart inflame;
Keep Thy fear before my sight;
Be Thy praise my highest aim;
Be Thy smile my chief delight,
Be Thy smile my chief delight.
3 Fountain of o'erflowing grace,
Freely from Thy fullness give;
Till I close my earthly race,
May I prove it Christ to live,
May I prove it Christ to live.
4 Firmly trusting in Thy blood,
Nothing shall my heart confound;
Safely I shall pass the flood,
Safely reach Emmanuel's ground,
Safely reach Emmanuel's ground.
5 Thus, O thus, an entrance give
To the land of cloudless sky;
Having known it Christ to live,
Let me know it gain to die,
Let me know it gain to die.
Amen. Scripture: Philippians 1:21 Tune Title: HENDON
Christ, of All My Hopes the Ground
