1 Lo, upon the altar lies
Bread of heaven from the skies:
Food to mortal wand'rers giv'n,
To the sons and heirs of heav'n.
2 Jesus, Shepherd of Thy sheep,
Thou Thy flock in safety keep.
Living Bread, Thy life supply;
Strengthen us, or else we die.
3 Thou Who feedest us below,
Source of all we have or know,
Grant that with Thy saints above
We may reach Thy feast of love!
