Lyrics: 1. When soon the sacred hour comes, To offer God my broken heart.
Then I partake of comfort's crust That healing in my soul may start.
I take with faith the little cup Of Christ's compassion true and full.
And drink as He once drank his up, To purify my wounded soul.

2. When soon the sacred hour comes I feast forgiveness as the bread,
I drink from sweet redemption's wine From Him who suffered in my stead.
By sacred symbols I am filled With gratitude and purity.
Through sacrifice, I a renewed, And granted new security.

3. When soon the sacred hour comes, I join the great physician there
To ponder on my neighbor's load And how to heal those in despair.
With gifts abundant I receive, I'll seek their souls to lift and bless.
This time endows me with the pow'r To succor others in distress.
