++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Let thy blood in mercy poured,

let thy gracious Body broken,

be to me, O gracious Lord,

of thy boundless love the broken.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.

2.  Thou didst die that I might live;

blessed Lord, thou cam’st to save me;

all that love of God could give

Jesus by his sorrows gave me.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.

3.  By the thorns that crowned thy brow,

by the spear-wound and the nailing,

by the pain and death, I now claim

O Christ, thy love unfailing.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.

4.  Wilt thou own gift I bring?

All my penitence I give thee;

thou art my exalted King,

of thy matchless love forgive me.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.
