Grant us, Lord, due preparation

Representative Text

1 Grant us, Lord! due preparation
For Thy blest Supper's celebration;
Come, come, O God! our midst within;
Unto life do Thou enable
Us now in faith t'approach Thy table;
Pronounce us free from death and sin!
O Savior! we are Thine;
Thin let us e'er remain!
Amen! amen!
Praise be to Thee!
In heaven we,
Thy Supper great shall celebrate.

2 Take and eat, the bread of life here offered;
Eterna life by Christ is proffered;
His peace and comfort be with you!
Take, and unto life in heaven
Drink of salvation's cup now given,
Inherit Jesus' kingdom true.
Watch, let your ev'ry breath
Be faithful unto death!
Amen! amen!
Straight is the way,
And few are they
The Judge shall crown and call His own.
