1 Before to His sad death He went
Jesus ordained the Sacrament. Hallelujah!
2 His flesh and blood through power divine
Is in, with, under, bread ad wine. Hallelujah!
3 The Sacrament gives grace and life
To quit ourselves like men in strife. Hallelujah!
4 Against all sin, affliction, need,
It gives us health and strength indeed. Hallelujah!
5 Lord, with this bread grant us such good;
Refresh us with Thy precious blood. Hallelujah.
6 That sills the thirst of our faint soul
And makes our spirits strong and whole. Hallelujah!
7 O Christ, grant Thou in grace that we
May now receive Thee worthily. Hallelujah!
8 Forbid it, Lord! that we receive
Thee unto judgment. Let us live! Hallelujah!
