O God, We Give Ourselves Today

O God, we give ourselves today with bread
and wine to thee, the self-same gift which
thy dear Son gave once on Calvary.

Entire and whole, our life and love with heart
and soul and mind, for all our sins and faults
and needs thy Church and humankind.

With humble and with contrite heart this bread
and wine we give because thy Son once gave
himself, and died that we might live.

O Lord, who took our human life, as water
mixed with wine, grant through this sacrifice
that we may share thy life divine.
