Accept, O Father, in your love,
These humble gifts of bread and wine,
That with ourselves we offer you,
Returning gifts already yours.
Your Son, the victim and the priest,
Through human hands does here renew,
The perfect sacrifice of love,
To render God our worship due.
Behold this host and chalice, Lord
To you on high the gifts we raise;
Through them may we our honour pay,
Our adoration and our praise.
Into your precious blood, O Lord,
The priestly word will change the wine
O may our sins be washed therein,
Our hearts be made like unto yours.
No earthly claim to grace is ours,
Save what your sacrifice has won;
Grant then your grace, fulfil our needs,
And may your will in ours be done.
Accept, O Father, In Your Love Lyrics
