Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Here at thy table, Lord

As to the banquet hall

Author: May P. Hoyt
Published in 1 hymnal

Author: May P. Hoyt

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. --George Brandon, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
