CANDIDATES FOR COMMUNION




Do we with humble hearts enquire,
Who are the persons God invites,
To dwell within his house below,
And to attend its solemn rites?


The sacred word declares them such,
Whose hearts are changed by sovereign grace,
Who place their confidence and hope
In Jesus’ blood and righteousness:


Who know the truth, and in the ways
Of holiness direct their feet,
Who love communion with the saints,
And shun the place where scorners meet.


With past attainments not content,
Increasing purity they seek;
By whom uprightness is maintained
In all they do, in all they speak.


These are the men whom God invites,
For them we open wide the door,
Whate’er their birth or rank may be,
The bond or free, the rich, the poor.


Come then, ye happy waiting souls
To whom these characters apply;
You’re welcome here to be a guest,
Come and receive a rich supply.
