Jesus, Mas­ter, hear me now,
While I would re­new my vow,
And re­cord Thy dy­ing love;
Hear, and help me from above.

Feed me, Sav­ior, with this bread,
Broken in Thy bo­dy’s stead;
Cheer my spir­it with this wine,
Streaming like that blood of Thine.

And as now I eat and drink,
Let me tru­ly, sweet­ly think,
Thou didst hang up­on the tree,
Broken, bleed­ing, there—for me.
