1 Jesu, to Thy table led,
Now let every heart be fed
With the true and living bread.
2 While in penitence we kneel,
Thy blest presence let us feel,
All Thy wondrous love reveal.
3 While on Thy dear cross we gaze,
Mourning o'er our sinful ways,
Turn our sadness into praise.
4 When we taste the mystic wine,
Of Thine outpoured blood the sign;
Fill our hearts with love divine.
5 Draw us to Thy wounded side,
Whence there flowed the healing tide;
There our sins and sorrows hide.
6 From the bonds of sin release,
Cold and wavering faith increase;
Lamb of God, grant us Thy peace.
7 Lead us by Thy piercèd hand,
Till around Thy throne we stand
In the bright and better land.
