Lord at Thy Table I Behold The wonders




Lord, at Thy Table I Behold
The wonders of thy grace;
But most of all admire that I
Should find a welcome place;


I that was all defiled in sin,
A rebel to my God;
I that have crucified His Son
And trampled on His blood.


What strange, surprising grace is this,
That such a soul has room!
My Saviour takes me by the hand,
My Jesus bids me come.


"Eat, O my friends!" the Saviour cries,
"The feast was made for you;
For you I groaned, and bled and died,
And rose, and triumphed too."


With trembling faith and bleeding hearts,
Lord, we accept thy love;
'Tis a rich banquet we have had,
What will it be above?


Ye saints below, and hosts of heaven,
Join all your praising powers;
No theme is like redeeming love,
No Saviour is like ours.


Had I ten thousand hearts, dear Lord,
I'd give them all to thee;
Had I ten thousand tongues, they all
Should join the harmony.


---Alternative verses---


Lord, at Thy table we behold
The wonders of thy grace;
But most of all admire that we
Are welcome to a place;


We, laden with the guilt of sin,
And rebels to our God;
We, that have crucified Thy Son
And trampled on His blood.


I who am all defiled with sin,
A rebel to my God;
I that have crucified His Son
And trampled on His blood.


What wondrous god-like grace is this,
That we should there find room;
Yet Jesus doth our souls invite,
And bids us freely come.


Ye saints below, and hosts above,
Join all your sacred powers;
No theme is like redeeming love,
No Saviour is like ours.


Ye saints below, and hosts of heaven!
In praise join all your powers;
No theme is like redeeming love!
No Saviour is like ours!


With humble faith and thankful hearts,
Lord, we accept thy love;
'Tis a rich banquet we have had,
What will it be above?
