a263. Before to His sad death He went

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!
