Text and translations
translated from Greek, in Hymns from the East, 1907
1 Let thy Blood in mercy poured,
let thy gracious Body broken,
be to me, O gracious Lord,
of thy boundless love the token. Thou didst give thyself for me, Now I give myself to thee.
2 Thou didst die that I might live;
blessed Lord, thou cam'st to save me;
all that love of God could give
Jesus by his sorrows gave me. Thou didst give thyself for me, now I give myself to thee.
3 By the thorns that crowned thy brow,
by the spear-wound and the nailing,
by the pain and death, I now
claim, O Christ, thy love unfailing. Thou didst give thyself for me, now I give myself to thee.
4 Wilt thou own the gift I bring?
All my penitence I give thee;
thou art my exalted King,
of thy matchless love forgive me. Thou didst give thyself for me, now I give myself to thee.
