Before To His Sad Death He Went

Before to His sad death He went
Jesus ordained the Sacrament.
His flesh and blood thro’ power divine
Is in, with, under, bread ad wine.

The Sacrament gives grace and life
To quit ourselves like men in strife.
Against all sin, affliction, need,
It gives us health and strength indeed.

Lord, with this bread grant us such good;
Refresh us with Thy precious blood.
That stills the thirst of our faint soul
And makes our spirits strong and whole.

O Christ, grant Thou in grace that we
May now receive Thee worthily.
Forbid it, Lord! that we receive
Thee unto judgment. Let us live!
