SATB or Two-Part Mixed Choir with Organ. Both scores included. (The recording is of the SATB version.) A meditative, beautiful, and moving setting of this communion text. The melody in canon makes this easy to learn and sing. Use as the anthem when appropriate or anytime of year during the communion service.

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.

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