Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Saved by his body, hallowed by his blood

Saved by his body, hallowed by his blood

Tune: COME CHRIST'S BELOVED
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

[Refrain]
1 Come, Christ's beloved, feed on his body true
Drink your salvation in his precious blood.

2 Saved by his body, hallowed by his blood;
here in God's banquet; let us thank our Lord.

3 Christ, in this myst'ry gives us his flesh and blood,
Guiding us safely through death's shade to light.

4 Son of the Father, king of all the world,
Christ is our Saviour by his Cross and blood.

5 Christ, priest and victim, offers himself for all,
At once the giver and the gift divine.

6 Priests of the old law, off'ring blood outpoured,
did but foreshadow Christ, the Victim Priest.

7 Christ, our redeemer, Christ now the light of men,
Does thus enrich us by his grace sublime.

8 Bring to this banquet faithful hearts sincere,
take hence the promise of eternal life.

9 Come, Christ's beloved, feed on his body true.
Drink your salvation in his precious blood.
