1 In the quiet consecration
of this glad communion hour,
here we rest in you, Lord Jesus,
taste your love and touch your power.
2 Christ, the living bread from heaven,
Christ, whose blood is drink indeed,
here by faith and with thanksgiving,
in our hearts on you we feed.
3 By your death for sin atoning,
by your resurrection life,
hold us fast in joyful union;
strengthen us to face the strife;
4 while in joyful holy radiance
shines the feast that is to come
after conflict, toil, and testing
your great feast of love and home!
