Holy Communion: The Communion

323. I am not worthy, holy Lord

C.M.

Albano:

Vincent Novello, 1800

Henry W. Baker, 1875

I am not worthy, holy Lord,

l That thou shouldst come to me;

Speak but the word: one gracious word

Can set the sinner free.

I am not worthy; cold and bare

The lodging of my soul;

How canst thou deign to enter there?

Lord, speak, and make me whole.

I am not worthy; yet, my God,

How can I say Thee nay;

Thee, who didst give thy Flesh and Blood

My ransom price to pay?

O come! in this sweet morning hour

Feed me with food divine;

And fill with all thy love and power

This worthless heart of mine.

Amen.
