Draw near and take the body of your Lord

Full Text

1 Draw near and take the body of the Lord,
And drink the holy blood for you out-poured;
Offered was he for greatest and for least,
Himself the victim and himself the priest.

2 He who his saints in this world rules and shields,
To all believers life eternal yields;
With heav'nly bread he makes the hungry whole,
Gives living waters to the thirsting soul.

3 Come forward then with faithful hearts sincere,
And take the pledges of salvation here.
O Lord, our hearts with grateful thanks endow
As in this feast of love you bless us now.
