1.  Thy table I approach,

Dear Savior, hear my pray’r,

O let no unrepented sin

Prove hurtful to me there.

2.  Lo, I confess my sins,

And mourn their wretched bands:

A contrite heart is ever wont

To find grace at Thy hands.

3.  Thy body and Thy blood,

Once slain and shed for me,

Are taken at Thy table here–

O wondrous mystery!

4.  Here I with mouth and soul,

Incomprehensibly,

Shall eat the precious flesh of Christ

In blest reality.

5.  Search not how this takes place,

Nor whether it can be;

God can accomplish vastly more

Than seemeth plain to thee.

6.  Vouchsafe, O blessed Lord,

That earth and hell combined,

May ne’er about this Sacrament

A doubt raise in my mind.

7.  And may I never fail,

To thank Thee day and night,

For Thy true body and true blood,

O God, my peace and light.

1.  Jesus, Thou art mine forever,

Dearer far than earth to me;

Neither life nor death shall sever

Those sweet ties which bind to Thee.

2.  All were drear to me and lonely

If Thy presence gladdened not;

While I sing to Thee, Thee only,

Mine’s an ever blissful lot.

3.  Thou alone art all my Treasure,

Who hast died that I may live;

Thou conferrest noblest pleasure,

Who dost all my sins forgive.

4.  Brightest gems and fairest flowers

Lose their beauty in Thy frown;

Joy and peace, like balmy showers,

In Thy smile come gently down.

5.  Jesus, Thou art mine forever;

Never suffer me to stray.

Let me in my weakness never

Cast my priceless pearl away.

6.  Lamb of God, I do implore Thee,

Guard, support me, lest I fall.

Let me evermore adore Thee;

Be my everlasting all.

1.  Lord, open Thou my heart to hear

And through Thy Word to me draw near;

Let me Thy Word e’er pure retain,

Let me Thy child and heir remain.

2.  Thy Word doth deeply move the heart,

Thy Word doth perfect health impart,

Thy Word my soul with joy doth bless,

Thy Word brings peace and happiness.

3.  To God the Father, God the Son,

And God the Spirit, Three in One,

Shall glory, praise, and honor be

Now and throughout eternity.
