O bread to pilgrims given (Passion Chorale)

Hymn – O bread to pilgrims given -Lyrics

O Bread to pilgrims given,
O food that angels eat,
O manna sent from heaven,
For heav’n-born natures meet:
Give us, for thee long pining,
To eat till richly filled;
Till, earth’s delights resigning,
Our every wish is stilled.

O water, life-bestowing,
Forth from the Saviour’s heart
A fountain purely flowing,
A fount of love thou art:
O let us, freely tasting,
Our burning thirst assuage;
Thy sweetness, never wasting,
Avails from age to age.

Jesus, this feast receiving,
We thee unseen adore;
Thy faithful word believing,
We take, and doubt no more:
Give us, thou true and loving,
On earth to live in thee;
Then, death the veil removing,
Thy glorious face to see.

O sacred head, surrounded (Passion Chorale)

Hymn – O Sacred head, surrounded – Lyrics

O Sacred head, surrounded
by crown of piercing thorn!
O bleeding head, so wounded,
reviled and put to scorn!
Death’s pallid hue comes over you
The glow of life decays,
yet angel hosts adore thee
and tremble as they gaze

I see thy strength and vigor
all fading in the strife,
and death with cruel rigor,
bereaving thee of life;
O agony and dying!
O love to sinners free!
Jesus, all grace supplying,
O turn thy face on me.

In this thy bitter passion,
Good Shepherd, think of me
with thy most sweet compassion,
unworthy though I be:
beneath thy cross abiding
for ever would I rest,
in thy dear love confiding,
and with thy presence blest.
