We do not presume
to come to this thy Table, O merciful Lord,
trusting in our own righteousness,
but in they manifold and great mercies.
We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under thy Table.
But thou art the same Lord,
whose property is always to have mercy.
Grant us therefore, gracious Lord,
so to eat the flesh of the dear Son Jesu Christ,
and to drink his blood,
that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his body,
and our souls washed through his most precious blood,
and that we may evermore dwell in him and he in us. Amen.
