Hoyt, May Pierpont (late 19th century?). Disciple (?). Nothing is known of this writer except what can be inferred from the appearance of one hymn credited to this name, "Here at thy table, Lord, This sacred hour," a communion hymn written in the meter of, and printed with the tune of, "Break thou the bread of life," and apparently intended to supplant Lathbury's 1877 Bible hymn often used as if it were referring to the bread of the Lord's Supper. "Here at thy table" has been reported as early as 1889, and it has appeared quite generally in Disciple books since as early as 1905, but seldom in books of other denominations.
