1This bread and wine, this offering pure
Deign to receive, O God, we pray;
Upon Thy holy altar throne
Thine own appointed gifts we lay,
For we confess Thee Lord of all,
And thus our bounden duty pay.
2Send down Thy Spirit, Lord and God,
Upon this bread and cup to brood,
To make these earthly elements
Our sacramental heavenly food,
This bread the body of Thy Christ,
This mingled cup His precious blood.
3And then on us Thy Spirit pour
Before Thine altar bending here,
That we may this great offering make
With reverence and godly fear;
Awaiting thus the last great day
When Christ in glory shall appear. Amen.
Genesis14:18And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
