541. O Jesus, Blessed Lord

1 O Jesus, blessed Lord, to you
my heartfelt thanks and praise are due;
you have so lovingly bestowed
on me your body and your blood.

2 Break forth, my soul, for joy and say:
What wealth is come to me today!
My Savior dwells within my soul
and makes my wounded spirit whole!
