Jesus, In Death You SHed Your Blood
Jesus, in Death You Shed Your Blood
Jesus, in death you shed your Blood
that each of us might live;
now as our living Bread from Heav'n
your loving self you give.
Jesus, we see you present here
by faith and not by sight;
love bids you welcome, living Bread
in whom is all delight.
Jesus, you give your very all,
true Bread from heav'n above;
you are the giver and the gift,
the sign, the source, of love.
How can we thank you, loving Lord,
who show yourself so kind?
Take what we have, take all we are,
our heart, our strength, our mind.
These are the gifts we now restore
to you, our Lord and King;
since you have shared your all with us
to you our all we bring.
