087 - Humbly We Adore Thee
Melvin Farrell, S.S.
1. Humbly we adore Thee, Christ, Redeemer King
Thou art Lord of heaven, Thou to whom we sing
God, the Mighty, Thou has come, bearing gifts of grace
Son of Adam still Thou art: savior to our race.
2. Jesus, Lord, we thank Thee for this wondrous bread
In our land Thou dwellest, by Thee we are fed
We who share this mystery in Thee are made one
Every act we offer Thee in Thy name is done.
3. Thou who died to save us livest as our light;
Though our eyes are blinded, yet our faith gives sight
Christ, do Thou be merciful, lamb for sinners slain
We in grief confess our guilt, cleanse our souls of stain.
4. Christ, our God and Brother, hear our humble plea
By this Holy banquet keep us joined to Thee
Make us one in loving Thee, one in mind and heart
Till in heaven we are Thine, never more to part.
