Offertory

Accept, almighty Father, these gifts of bread
and wine, which now the priest is offering
for us before thy shine; but soon the word will
make them his body and his blood, the sacrifice
renewing, once offered on the rood.

With these, although unworthy, some offering
we make, but all we have, thou gavest, then what
thou gavest take; our heart, our soul, our senses,
we give thro’ Mary’s hands. Who by the cross
once standing, now by the altar stands.
