Representative Text

1 Lamb of God, who once wast slain,
We, whose sins did pierce Thee,
Now commemorate Thy pain,
And implore Thy mercy.

2 Thine's an everlasting Love:
We have sorely tried Thee.
Whom have we in heaven above.
Whom on earth beside Thee?

3 What can helpless sinners do,
When temptations seize us?
Naught have we to look unto,
But the Blood of Jesus.

4 Pardon all our baseness, Lord;
All our weakness pity:
Guide us safely by Thy Word
To the heavenly city.

5 O sustain us on the road
Through this desert dreary,.
Feed us with Thy Flesh and blood,
When we're faint and weary.

6 Bid us call to mind Thy Cross
Our hard hearts to soften.
Often, Saviour, feast us thus;
For we need it often.
