O Spirit of the living Christ, your holiness bestow,
That through the bread we take and break, salvation we may know.
May your blood shed, the cup we drink, our souls inebriate;
And water from your wounded side our spirits recreate.
Your passion, Christ, will give us strength to bear the cross you bore;
And as we lift our prayers to you, O hear us, we implore.
Within your wounds may each one find a sacred dwelling place
That from you we may not depart, nor fail to see your face.
In all assaults of enemies, help us to persevere;
And when we see the face of death call us to you, Savior dear,
That with your saints and angels bright, in all their company,
Your praise shall be our joy and song throughout eternity.
