656. O sacrifice of Calvary

Author: Michael Saward

O sacrifice of calvary,
O Lamb whose sacred blood was shed,
O great High Priest on heaven’s throne,
O Victor from the dead!
Here I recall your agony,
here see again your bloodstained brow;
beyond the sign of bread and wine
I know your presence now.

2. Your royal presence intercedes
eternally for me above,
and here my hungry spirit feeds
upon these gifts of love;
before your holy table laid
I kneel once more in hope and peace,
your blood and flesh my soul refresh
with joy that shall not cease.
