Full Text

1 O Jesus, bruised and wounded more
Than bursted grape, or bread of wheat,
The Life of life within our souls,
The Cup of our salvation sweet!

2 We come to show Thy dying hour,
Thy streaming vein, Thy broken flesh;
And still the blood is warm to save,
And still the fragrant wounds are fresh.

3 O Heart! that with a double tide
Of blood and water maketh pure,
O Flesh! once offered on the cross,
The gift that makes our pardon sure;

4 Let never more our sinful souls
The anguish of Thy cross renew;
Nor forge again the cruel nails,
That pierced Thy victim body through.

5 Come, Bread of heaven, to feed our souls,
And with Thee, Jesus enter in!
Come, Wine of God! and as we drink,
His precious blood wash out our sin!
