1We offer, Lord, this Sacrifice,
And Thy great Majesty adore,
We thank Thee for Thy gracious gifts,
And praise Thy name forevermore.
2We pray for pardon and for grace
To change the lives that we have led,
And beg Thee, for Thy Son’s dear sake,
To bless the living and the dead.
3Our Savior’s death, O God, we plead
For all the souls He died to save,
And now for our departed ones
The blessings of Thy love we crave.
4O grant them, Lord eternal rest,
On them let light perpetual shine,
That in Thy Heavenly Home at last
They may, O Lord, be ever Thine.
5See, Father, Thy belovèd Son,
Whom here we now present to Thee,
The all-sufficient sacrifice,
The sinner’s one and only plea.
6Through Him we pray for all we love,
For all by pain or sin opprest,
For souls departed in Thy fear,
O grant them Thine eternal rest. Amen.
Malachi3:17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
