2 Saved by that Body and that holy Blood,
With souls refreshed, we render thanks to God. 3 Salvation's giver, Christ, the only Son,
By His dear Cross and Blood the victory won.
Himself the Victim, and Himself the Priest.
Now gives His holy grace, His saints to aid.
And take the safeguard of salvation here.
To all believers life eternal yields;
Latin Hymn, 7th cent. Tr. JOHN M. NEALE
Kd=76)By Christ re-deemed, in Christ re-stored, We keep the mem-o
And show the death of
our dear Lord, Un - til
2 His body, broken in our stead
4 And thus that dark betrayal night, Is here, in this memorial bread;
With the last Advent we uniteAnd so our feeble love is fed,
The shame, the glory, by this rite, Until He come.
Until He come. 3 His fearful drops of agony,
5 Until the trump of God be heard, His life-blood shed for us, we see:
Until the ancient graves be stirred, The wine shall tell the mystery,
And with the great commanding word, Until He come.
The Lord shall come.
Let not our hearts be desolate,
Copyright, 1877, by J. H. Vincent.
2 Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord, to me, to me,
As Thou didst bless the bread by Galilee;
MARY A. LATHBURY
2 O perfect Life, be Thou their full assurance
Of tender charity and steadfast faith,
With childlike trust that fears nor pain nor death.
3 Grant them the joy which brightens earthly sorrow;
Grant them the peace which calms all earthly strife,
DOROTHY F. BLOMFIELD
(d=112) Lord, Who at Ca - na's wed- ding feast Didst as
far than earth - ly guest Vouch-safe Thy pres- ence here;
ho - ly Thou in - deed dost prove The mar-riage vow
Between the Church and Thee. A-men.
2 The holiest vow that man can make,
The golden thread of life,
That bindeth man and wife;
No evil shall destroy,
And doubles every joy.
3 On those who at Thine altar kneel,
O Lord, Thy blessing pour,
To love Thee more and more:
In purity and love,

JOHN B. DYKES
(d=74) Now the la- borer's task is o'er; Now the bat - tle day is
ggg in Thy gracious keep - ing Leave we now Thy ser-vant sleep - ing. A-men.
2 There the tears of earth are dried;
There its hidden things are clear; There the work of life is tried
By a juster Judge than here. Father, in Thy gracious keeping Leave we now Thy servant sleeping,
4 There no more the powers of hell
Can prevail to mar their peace; Christ the Lord shall guard them well,
He who died for their release. Father, in Thy gracious keeping Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.
3 There the penitents, that turn
To the Cross their dying eyes,
At His feet in Paradise.
5 “Earth to earth, and dust to dust,”
Calmly now the words we say,
Till the resurrection-day.
