6 Hail True Body

This Communion hymn never ceased to move me deeply. We sang it often at St Luke’s Wallsend.


Hail True Body

Born of Mary

By a wondrous Virgin birth

Thou who on the cross wast offered

To redeem the sons of earth

Thou whose side became a fountain

Pouring forth thy precious blood

Give us now and at our dying

Thine own self to be our food.

O sweetest Jesu

O gracious Jesu,

O Jesu blessed Mary’s son.
