308. Invited, Lord, by Boundless Grace

1 Invited, Lord, by boundless grace,
I stand a guest before Thy face;
As Host Thou spreadst no common food:
Here is Thy body and Thy blood.

2 How holy is this Sacrament
Where pardon, peace, and life are spent!
This bread and cup my lips have pressed;
Thou blessedst, and my soul is blessed.

3 Now lettest Thou Thy guest depart
With full assurance in his heart.
For such communion, Lord, with Thee
A new life may my off'ring be.

4 When Thou shalt in Thy glory come
To gather all Thy people home,
Then let me, as Thy heav’nly guest,
In anthems praise Thee with the blest.

Amen.
