425. 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 thy feast to us the token
that by thy grace our souls are fed.
