1. Sing forth, O Zion, sweetly sing,
The praises of thy Shepherd-King,
In hymns and canticles divine;
Dare all thou canst, thou hast no song,
Worthy his praises to prolong,
So far surpassing powers like thine.

2. Today no theme of common praise
Forms the sweet burden of thy lays –
The living, life-dispensing food –
That food which at the sacred board
Unto the brethren twelve our Lord
His parting legacy bestowed.

3. Then be the anthem clear and strong,
Thy fullest note, thy sweetest song,
The very music of the breast:
For now shines forth the day sublime
That brings remembrance of the time
When Jesus first his table blessed.

Behold the Bread of Angels, made the food of wayfarers, truly the bread of children, not to be given to the dogs.
Presignified by figure, when Isaac was immolated, the Paschal Lamb was commanded, manna was given to the fathers.
Good shepherd, true bread, Jesus, have mercy on us:
feed us,protect us, make us to see good things in the land of the living.
Thou who knowest and willest all things,who feeds us mortals by this:
make thine own to be partakers of,co-heirs and citizens in that holy city of saints.
