Lyrics

Bread of the world, in mercy broken,
Wine of the soul, in mercy shed,
By Whom the words of life were spoken,
And in Whose death our sins are dead.

Lo,Ok on the heart by sorrow broken,
Lo,Ok on the tears by sinners shed;
And be Thy feast to us the token,
That by Thy grace our souls are fed.
