CENTRE of our hopes Thou art,
   End of our enlarged desires;
Stamp Thine image on our heart,
    Fill us now with heavenly fires;
Joined in one 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.
Charles Wesley, 1707-88
