838St. Mary TavySir Joseph Barnby (1838-1896)

1We thank Thee, Father, for the love
Revealed to us in Thy dear Son,
We thank Thee for His sacred death
Which doth for all our sins atone,
And for that wondrous sacrifice
Here shown upon His altar throne.
2Receive It offered here today,
The offering perfect in Thine eyes,
For all the faithful here on earth,
For all whom sin or sorrow tries,
For souls departed in Thy fear,
The one eternal sacrifice.
3Forgive, O God, our many sins,
Forgive our wandering thoughts today;
Help us to follow Jesus Christ,
And more and more His word obey;
That we may welcome Him at last,
And see His unveiled face for aye. Amen.
Hebrews13:15By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
