COMMUNION WITH OUR LORD




Jesus invites his saints
To meet around his board;
Here pardoned rebels sit, and hold
Communion with their Lord.


For food he gives his flesh,
For wine pours out his blood;
Amazing favour, matchless grace
Of our descending God!


This holy bread and wine
Sustain our fainting breath,
By union with our living Lord,
And interest in his death.


Our heavenly Father calls
Christ and his members one;
We the adopted of his love,
And he the first-born Son.


We are but several parts
Of this same broken bread;
Our body has its several limbs.
But Jesus is the Head.


Let all our powers be joined
His glorious name to raise;
Pleasure and love fill every mind,
And every voice be praise.

Jesus invites his saints
To meet around his board;
Here pardoned sinners sit, and hold
Communion with their Lord.


For food he gives his flesh,
He bids us drink his blood;
Amazing favour, matchless grace
Of our descending God!


This holy bread and wine
Maintains our fainting breath,
By union with our living Lord,
And interest in his death.


Our heavenly Father calls
Christ and his members one;
We the young children of his love,
And he the first-born Son.


Let all our powers be joined,
His glorious name to raise;
Let holy love fill every mind,
And every voice be praise.
