What shall I render unto Thee,
O Lord Jesus
for all that Thou hast done unto me,
especially on this day?
In Thy care for me Thou hast given me Thy Body for my
and Thy Blood for my drink,
and both as a pledge of future glory.
Would that my lips might be opened,
and my mouth filled with Thy praise,
that I might sing of Thy glory
and of Thy greatness all the day long,
and tell of all Thy wondrous works.
O my soul, magnify the Lord,
from whom thou hast received blessings so many and so
and rejoice, my spirit, in God
for He hath looked down on my lowliness;
and the Mighty One hath done great things for me,
and hath filled me, when hungry, with good
Let my words please Thee, O Lord;
my joy shall be in Thee,
and I will
strive to practise Thy commandments.
Hold Thou me by Thy right
and guide me by Thy will,
that Thou mayest afterwards receive me into Thy glory,
for Thy mercy's sake.
