Lyrics

As before his Table kneeling,
we this Sacrament revere;
ancient mysteries revealing,
give the sign to eye and ear.
Faith, our outward senses sealing,
makes our inward vision clear.

Glory let us give, and blessing,
to the Father and the Son;
Holy Spirit, praise addressing,
ever Three and ever One.
Ever to,O, his love confessing
while eternal ages run.  Amen.
