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.
4 Offered was He for greatest and for least,

Himself the Victim, and Himself the Priest.
5 He, Ransomer from death, and Light from shade,

Now gives His holy grace, His saints to aid.
6 Approach ye then with faithful hearts sincere,

And take the safeguard of salvation here.
7 He, that His saints in this world rules and shields,

To all believers life eternal yields;
8 With heavenly bread makes them that hunger whole,
Gives living waters to the thirsting soul. Amen.

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.
6 Oh, blessèd hope! with this elate

Let not our hearts be desolate,
But, strong in faith, in patience wait,
Until He come.
Amen.

2 Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord, to me, to me,

As Thou didst bless the bread by Galilee;
Then shall all bondage cease, all fetters fall,
And I shall find my peace, my all in all. Amen.

2 O perfect Life, be Thou their full assurance

Of tender charity and steadfast faith,
Of patient hope, and quiet, brave endurance,

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,
And to life's day the glorious unknown morrow
That dawns upon eternal love and life. Amen.

2 The holiest vow that man can make,

The golden thread of life,
The bond that none may dare to break,

That bindeth man and wife;
Which, blest by Thee, whate'er betides,

No evil shall destroy,
Thro' care-worn days each care divides,

And doubles every joy.

3 On those who at Thine altar kneel,

O Lord, Thy blessing pour,
That each may wake the other's zeal

To love Thee more and more:
Oh, grant them here in peace to live,

In purity and love,
And, this world leaving, to receive
A crown of life above! Amen.

past;

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,
All the love of Jesus learn

At His feet in Paradise.
Father, in Thy gracious keeping
Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.

5 “Earth to earth, and dust to dust,”

Calmly now the words we say,
Leaving him to sleep in trust

Till the resurrection-day.
Father, in Thy gracious keeping
Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.

Amen.
JOHN ELLERTON
