Bread of the world

if you do not hear the tune, click here.

Bread of the world in mercy broken,
Wine of the soul in mercy shed,
by whom the words of life were spoken,
and in whose death our sins are dead:

Look on the heart by sorrow broken,
look on the tears by sinners shed,
and be your feast to us the token
that by your grace our souls are fed.
