LORD ACCEPT THE GIFTS
1. Lord accept the gifts we offer,
At this Eucharistic feast,
Bread and wine to be transformed now,
Through the action of thy priest.
Take us too Lord and transform us
Be thy grace in us increased.
2. May our souls be pure and spotless,
As the host of wheat so fine;
May all stain of sin be crushed out,
Like the grape that forms the wine,
As we, too become partakers,
In the sacrifice divine.
3. Take our gifts, Almighty Father
Living God, eternal, true,
Which we give through Christ, our saviour,
Pleading here for us anew
Grant salvation to all present
And our faith and love renew.
