What I required as thrall to sin and grief -
That one should be ransom for my release -
Thou, Lord, provided, giving Thy life for me;
What I required that I might have relief
By precious blood with which to be redeemed
Thou, Lord, provided, bringing me into peace;
What I required on which to drink and feed -
Thy blood to drink, Thy body as my meat -
Thou, Lord, provided, so that I am replete;
What I required - to quicken and to lead
Thou, Lord, provided, the Holy Paraclete:
Whatever I require I have from Thee.
