340. Let thy Blood in mercy poured

7.8.7.8.7.7

Louise:

Johann Crüger, 1658

Greek;

Tr. John Brownlie, 1907

Let thy Blood in mercy poured,

Let thy gracious Body broken,

Be to me, O gracious Lord,

Of thy boundless love the token.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

Now I give myself to thee.

Thou didst die that I might live;

Blessèd Lord, thou cam'st to save me:

All that love of God could give

Jesus by his sorrows gave me.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

Now I give myself to thee.

310

By the thorns that crowned thy brow,

By the spear-wound and the nailing,

By the pain and death, I now

Claim, O Christ, thy love unfailing.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

Now I give myself to thee.

Wilt thou own the gift I bring?

All my penitence I give thee;

Thou art my exalted King,

Of thy matchless love forgive me.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

Now I give myself to Thee.

Amen.
