Our heavenly hope is in Christ
Who died for the souls He would save.
For us was our Lord sacrificed,
Who rose (as He said) from the grave!
We go to the altar of God:
A cup there is filled to the brim
With wrath from our Lord's judgment rod;
Behold there our sins laid on Him!
Our hope in the Lord is assured;
He saved us from infinite loss!
Though all other hopes be deferred,
Our peace was procured on the cross.
Our heavenly hope would have perished;
The storm would have swallowed us up,
O Lord, if we were not so cherished
That You drank our judgment-filled cup!
