Lyrics

Word made Flesh, this bread bestowing
by his Word his flesh to be,
Though our senses fail to see.
Wine, his sacred Blo,Od he makes,
faith alone, the true heart wakes.
Through this Sacrament may we
now behold the mystery.

Glory let us give, and blessing
to the Father and the Son,
While eternal ages run;
honor, thanks, and praise address
Ever to,O his love confess;
Holy Spirit, Father, Son,
ever three and ever one,
while eternal ages run.
Amen.
