Our Morning Offering – 5 October
To Christ, the Prince of Peace
Trans Fr Edward Caswell CO (1814-1878)
To Christ, the Prince of Peace,
And Son of God most high,
The Father of the world to come,
Sing we with holy joy.
Deep in His Heart, for us,
The wound of love He bore;
That love wherewith He still inflames
The hearts that Him adore.
O Jesu, victim blest,
What else but love divine
Could Thee constrain to open thus
That Sacred Heart of thine?
O fount of endless life,
O spring of water clear,
O flame celestial, cleansing all
Who unto Thee draw near!
Hide us in Thy dear heart,
For thither do we fly;
There seek Thy grace through life; in death
