The Solemn Sacrifice begins,
The Lamb is offered for our sins.
He lies upon his alter throne,
High priest and victim both in one.
His sacrifice of love divine,
Renewed in veils of bread and wine,
Glory to your great name we sing,
For this most precious offering.
We too upon this alter lay,
Our humble offerings today,
We give our love though weak and small,
Our simple heart, ourselves, our all.
These gifts, dear Saviour, deign to bless,
And pardon our unworthiness,
While glory to your name we sing,
For your own precious offering.
The Solemn Sacrifice Begins Lyrics
