    At supper Christ took bread
    To bless and break and give;
    “Take this, my flesh,” he said,
    “And eat to live.”

    He then gave thanks for wine
    He'd taken and anew
    Said: “Drink this blood of mine,
    Poured out for you.”

    As Priest who sacrificed
    And Victim offered up,
    Our paschal feast is Christ
    In loaf and cup.

    Make us the grains you mill,
    O Lord, for bread you break,
    And grapes pressed out to fill
    The cup you take!
