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 wherewith He still inflames
The hearts that Him adore.
3 O Jesu, victim blest,
What else but love divine
Could Thee constrain to open thus
That Sacred Heart of thine?
4 O fount of endless life,
O spring of water clear,
O flame celestial, cleansing all
Who unto Thee draw near!
5 Hide us in Thy dear heart,
For thither do we fly;
There seek Thy grace through life; in death
Thine immortality.
