Full Text

[Refrain]
1 Come, Christ's beloved, feed on his body true
Drink your salvation in his precious blood.

2 Saved by his body, hallowed by his blood;
here in God's banquet; let us thank our Lord.

3 Christ, in this myst'ry gives us his flesh and blood,
Guiding us safely through death's shade to light.

4 Son of the Father, king of all the world,
Christ is our Saviour by his Cross and blood.

5 Christ, priest and victim, offers himself for all,
At once the giver and the gift divine.

6 Priests of the old law, off'ring blood outpoured,
did but foreshadow Christ, the Victim Priest.

7 Christ, our redeemer, Christ now the light of men,
Does thus enrich us by his grace sublime.

8 Bring to this banquet faithful hearts sincere,
take hence the promise of eternal life.

9 Come, Christ's beloved, feed on his body true.
Drink your salvation in his precious blood.
