54. I Come To Thee, O Blessed Lord

1 I come to Thee, O blessed Lord,
Invited by Thy gracious Word
To this Thy feast, to sup with Thee;
Grant that a worthy guest I be.

2 I come to Thee with sin and grief,
For Thou alone canst give relief;
Thy death for me, dear Lord, I plead:
O Jesus, help me in my need!

3 Shouldst Thou a strict account demand,
Who could, O Lord, before Thee stand?
Purge all my secret sins away:
Be Thou, O Christ, the sinner's stay!

4 O Jesus, Lamb of God alone
Who didst for all our sins atone,
Tho' I have sinned and gone astray,
Turn not, O Lord, Thy guest away!

5 O Jesus, Lamb of God, alone,
Who didst for all our sins atone,
Be merciful, I Thee implore:
Have mercy, Lord, forevermore!

Amen.
