"O Jesus, Blessed Lord, to Thee"
By Thomas Hansen Kingo, 1634-1703
THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
1. O Jesus, blessed Lord, to Thee
My heartfelt thanks forever be,
Who hast so lovingly bestowed
On me Thy body and Thy blood.
2. Break forth, my soul, for joy and say
What wealth is come to me this day!
My Savior dwells within my heart:
How blest am I! How good Thou art!
