        Dearest Lord, we are here,
        at thy call, thy Presence owning;
        pleading now in holy fear
        that thy Sacrifice atoning:
        Word incarnate, much in wonder
        on this mystery deep we ponder.


        Under forms of bread and wine
        simple hearts in faith adore thee:
        born of Mary, Son divine,
        low we bow the knee before thee
        opening heart alike and coffer,
        body, soul, to thee we offer.


        Jesus, strong to save--the same
        yesterday, today, for ever--
        make us fear and love thy name,
        serving thee with best endeavor:
        in this life, O ne'er forsake us,
        but to bliss hereafter take us.
