Lyrics

Verse 1 I come, O Savior, to Thy table, for weak and weary is my soul; Thou, Bread of Life, alone art able to satisfy and make me whole, Lord, may Thy body and Thy blood be for my soul the highest good! Verse 2 Oh, grant that I in manner worthy may now approach Thy heav'nly board And, as I lowly bow before Thee, look only unto Thee, O Lord! Lord, may Thy body and Thy blood be for my soul the highest good! Verse 3 Unworthy though I am, O Savior, because I have a sinful heart, Yet Thou Thy lamb wilt banish never, for Thou my faithful Shepherd art, Lord, may Thy body and Thy blood be for my soul the highest good! Verse 4 Oh, let me loathe all sin forever as death and poison to my soul That I through willful sinning never may see Thy judgment take its toll! Lord, may Thy body and Thy blood be for my soul the highest good! Verse 5 Thy heart is filled with fervent yearning that sinners may salvation see Who, Lord, to Thee in faith are turning; so I, a sinner, come to Thee. Lord, may Thy body and Thy blood be for my soul the highest good! Verse 6 Weary am I and heavy laden, with sin my soul is sore opprest; Receive me graciously and gladden My heart, for I am now Thy guest. Verse 7 Thou here wilt find a heart most lowly that humbly falls before Thy feet, That duly weeps o'er sin, yet solely Thy merit pleads, as it is meet. Verse 8 By faith I call Thy holy table the testament of Thy deep love; For, lo, thereby I now am able to see how love Thy heart doth move. Verse 9 What higher gift can we inherit? It is faith's bond and solid base; It is the strength of heart and spirit, the covenant of hope and grace. Verse 10 This feast is manna, wealth abounding unto the poor, to weak ones power, To angels joy, to hell confounding, and life for me in death's dark hour. Verse 11 Thy body, giv'n for me, O Savior, thy blood which Thou for me didst shed, These are my life and strength forever, by them my hungry soul is fed. Verse 12 With Thee, Lord, I am now united; I live in Thee and Thou in me. No sorrow fills my soul, delighted it finds its only joy in Thee. Verse 13 Who can condemn me now? For surely The Lord is nigh, who justifies. No hell I fear, and thus securely with Jesus I to Heaven rise. Verse 14 Though death may threaten with disaster, it cannot rob me of my cheer; For He Who is of death the Master, with aid and comfort e'er is near. Verse 15 My heart has now become Thy dwelling, O blessèd, holy Trinity. With angels I, Thy praises telling, shall live in joy eternally....
