346. Bread of the World, in Mercy Broken

1 Bread of the world, in mercy broken,
Wine of the soul in mercy shed,
By whom the words of life were spoken,
and in whose death our sins are dead,

2 Look on the heart by sorrow broken,
look on the tears by sinners shed,
And be your feast to us the token
that by your grace our lives are fed.
