384. Here, at Thy Table, Lord

1 Here at thy table, Lord,
this sacred hour,
O let us feel thee near,
in loving power;
calling our thoughts away
from self and sin.
As to thy banquet hall
we enter in.

2 Sit at the feast, dear Lord,
break thou the bread;
fill thou the cup that brings
life to the dead;
that we may find in thee
pardon and peace;
and from all bondage win
a full release.

3 Come then, O holy Christ,
feed us, we pray;
touch with thy pierced hand
each common day;
making this earthly life
full of Thy grace,
till in the home of heaven
we find our place.
