LXIII. Our Saviour present at his Table

1 Come let us join the sacred song
To our ascended Lord;
Ye saints and angels round the throne,
And we around his board.

2 Tho' rais'd beyond the worlds of light,
His brighter glories shine,
Where purer souls enjoy the sight
And presence more divine.

3 Yet here, unseen by mortal eyes,
The boundless God resides,
Renews the atoning sacrifice
And o'er the feast presides.

4 Let every hand that shares the food
And every heart with fear,
Feel the full presence of the God,
That spreads his bounties here.

5 But Oh, the love, the wondrous love
The bleeding Lord displays,
Shall earth's united songs improve,
And heaven's eternal praise.
