With deep humility, O Lord,

We come before Thy face;

We are unworthy, but Thy Word

Assures us to Thy grace.


This Sacrament Thou hast prepared,

In which Thy love shines forth,

It shows how richly Thou hast cared

For Thy redeemed on earth.


Here we receive, through bread and wine,

Thy body and Thy blood,

We are refreshed by grace divine

With this most precious food.


This is a wondrous mystery,

But we believe Thy Word;

All who confess their sins will see

How Thou dost life afford.
