1. Centre of our hopes thou art,
End of our enlarged desires;
Stamp thine image on our heart;
Fill us now with heav'nly fires;
Cemented by love divine,
Seal our souls for ever thine.


2. All our works in thee be wrought,
Levelled at one common aim;
Every word, and every thought,
Purge in the refining flame:
Lead us through the paths of peace,
On to perfect holiness.


3. Let us all together rise,
To thy glorious life restored,
Here regain our paradise,
Here prepare to meet our Lord;
Here enjoy the earnest given,
Travel hand in hand to heaven!
