Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

756. Lord, Who at Your First Eucharist

1 Lord, who at your first Eucharist did pray
That all your Church might be forever one,
Help us at ev'ry Eucharist to say
With longing heart and soul, "Your will be done."
Thus may we all one Bread, one Body be,
Through this, your Sacrament of Unity.

2 For all your Church O Lord, we intercede;
O make our lack of charity to cease.
Draw us the nearer each to each, we plead,
By drawing all to you, O Prince of Peace.
Thus may we all one Bread, one Body be,
Through this, your Sacrament of Unity.

3 We pray for those who wander from your fold;
O bring them bak, Good Shepherd of the sheep,
Back to the faith your saints believed of old,
Back to the Church which still that faith does keep.
Thus may we all one Bread, one Body be,
Through this, your Sacrament of Unity.

4 So, Lord, at length when sacraments shall cease,
May we be one with all your Church above,
One with your saints in one unbroken peace,
One with your saints in one unbounded love,
More blessed still, in peace and love to be
One with the Trinity in unity.
