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.
