Description

SATB and organ. Hauntingly beautiful.

Notes: Aim to keep the phrases smooth, working towards the start of the fourth bar of each four bar phrase. The composer has been attentive to the pacing of dynamics which should be observed carefully to effectively convey the mood of the words.

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.
