Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #LI (1791) Hymnal Title: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns Lyrics: 1 Come, let us join a joyful Tune,
To our exalted Lord,
Ye Saints on high around his Throne,
And we around his Board.
2 While once upon this lower Ground,
Weary and faint ye stood,
What dear Refreshments here ye found
From this immortal Food?
3 The Tree of Life, that near the Throne
In Heav'n's high Garden grows,
Laden with Grace, bends gently down
Its ever smiling Boughs.
[4 Hov'ring amongst the Leaves there stands
The sweet celestial Dove;
And Jesus on the Branches hangs
The Banner of his Love.]
[5 'Tis a young Heav'n of strange Delight
While in his Shade we sit;
His Fruit is pleasing to the Sight,
And to the Taste as sweet.
6 New Life it spreads through dying Hearts,
And cheers the drooping Mind;
Vigour and Joy the Juice imparts,
Without a Sting behind.]
7 Now let the flaming Weapon stand,
And guard all Eden's Trees
Ther's ne'er a Plant in all that Land
That bears such Fruit as these.
8 Infinite Grace our Souls adore,
Whose wond'rous Hand has made
This living Branch of sov'reign Pow'r
To raise and heal the Dead. Topics: liturgical Communion Songs; Washing of Feet and the Lord's Supper Languages: English
