1.  O dearest Lord, receive from me

The heartfelt thanks I offer Thee,

Who thro’ Thy body and the Thy blood,

Hast wrought my soul’s eternal good.

2.  Break forth, my soul, in joy and praise,

What wealth is mine this day of days!

My Jesus dwells within my soul;

Let ev’ry tongue His grace extol.
