Part the Second
1 Come, thou high and lofty Lord:
Lowly, meek, incarnate word:
Humbly stoop to earth again;
Come, and visit abject man!
Jesu, dear expected guest,
Thou art bidden to the feast:
For thyself our hearts prepare!
Come, and sit, and banquet there!
2 Jesu, we thy promise claim:
We are met in thy great name;
In the midst do thou appear,
Manifest thy presence here!
Sanctify us, Lord, and bless!
Breathe thy Spirit, give us peace:
Thou thyself within us move;
Make our feast a feast of love.
3 Let the fruits of grace abound;
Let in us thy bowels sound;
Faith, and love, and joy increase,
Temperance and gentleness;
Plant in us thy humble mind,
Patient, pitiful, and kind:
Meek and lowly let us be,
Full of goodness, full of thee.
4 Make us all in thee complete:
Make us all for glory meet;
Meet t' appear before thy sight,
Partners with the saints in light:
Call, O call us each by name!
To the marriage of the lamb:
Let us lean upon thy breast!
Love be there our endless feast!
