Lyrics

Traditional

In this Sacrament, sweet Jesus,
Thou didst give Thy Flesh and Blood,
With Thy soul and God-head also,
As our own most precious food.
Yes, dearest Jesus! I believe it,
And Thy presence I adore,
And with all my heart I love Thee,
May I love Thee more and more.

Come, sweet Jesus, in Thy mercy,
Give Thy Flesh and Blood to me,
Come to me, O dearest Jesus!
Come my soul’s true life to be,
Come that I may live forever,
Thou in me and I in Thee;
Living thus, I shall not perish,
But shall live eternally.

Modern English

In this Sacrament, sweet Jesus,
You didst give Your Flesh and Blood,
With Your soul and God-head also,
As our own most precious food.
Yes, dearest Jesus! I believe it,
And Your presence I adore,
And with all my heart I love You,
May I love You more and more.

Come, sweet Jesus, in Your mercy,
Give You Flesh and Blood to me,
Come to me, O dearest Jesus!
Come my soul’s true life to be,
Come that I may live forever,
You in me and I in You;
Living thus, I shall not perish,
But shall live eternally.
