Lo Upon The Altar Lies


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.

Jesus, Shepherd of Thy sheep,
Thou Thy flock in safety keep.
Living Bread, Thy life supply;
Strengthen us, or else we die.

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!
