1 Behold the eternal King and Priest
here brings for me the bread and wine;
himself the master of the feast,
his flesh and blood the food divine.

2 Lord Christ, I come, I hear your call,
I eat and drink at your command;
low at your feet I humbly fall
O touch me with your nail-pierced hand!

3 Wash clean my heart and make it new,
to beat with love for you alone;
so let me find my life in you,
and have no will except your own.

4 In strength or weakness, be my rest,
in joy or sorrow, be my friend:
so all my life I shall be blessed,
and by your mercy, gain my end.
