10143. Lord Of Life, On This Thy Day

1 Lord of life, on this Thy day,
We have met to praise and pray;
Gather us, O God our king,
’Neath the shadow of Thy wing.

Brightest day of all the seven,
Type of endless day in Heaven,
On this day, with heavenly bread,
May we, Lord, by Thee be fed.

2 May our praises to Thee given,
Mingle with the songs of Heaven;
May our prayers, like incense, be
Pleasing as they rise to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Close, O Christ, to Thee we draw;
Clear to us now make Thy law;
Open Thou our eyes to see
How each lesson points to Thee. [Refrain]
