In The Quiet Consecration (Volga, Volga Mat’ Rodnaya – 4 Verses) – Piano Ensemble

In The Quiet Consecration Lyrics

In the quiet consecration
Of this glad communion hour,
Here we rest in you, Lord Jesus,
Taste your love and touch your power.

Christ, the living bread from heaven,
Christ, whose blood is drink indeed,
Here by faith and with thanksgiving,
In our hearts on you we feed.

By your death for sin atoning,
By your resurrection life,
Hold us fast in joyful union;
Strengthen us to face the strife;

While in joyful holy radiance
Shines the feast that is to come
After conflict, toil, and testing
Your great feast of love and home!
