499 (C.M.) Samuel Stennett

Here at thy table, Lord, we meet

To feed on food divine:

Thy body is the bread we eat,

Thy precious blood the wine.

He that prepares this rich repast,

Himself comes down and dies;

And then invites us thus to feast

Upon the sacrifice.

Here peace and pardon sweetly flow,

O what delightful food!

We eat the bread, and drink the wine,

But think on nobler good.

The bitter torments He endured

Upon the shameful tree,

Each welcome guest may truly say

Were born of love to me.

Sure there was never love so free,

Dear Saviour, so divine!

Well Thou may'st claim that heart of me,

Which owes so much to Thine.
