Jesus, at thine invitation

Representative Text

1 Jesus, at Thine invitation
Draw we nigh with supplication;
Thou who hast Thy table spread,
With Thyself may we be fed.

2 Be Thy Cross our meditation;
Be Thy Name our consolation;
While Thy Death we call to mind,
May we here its blessings find.

3 Here in all revive contrition;
Here renew to all remission;
Here increase our love of Thee,
Let us Thy salvation see.

4 Visit us, O Bread of heaven;
Life from Thee to us be given,
Life divine that never ends,
That from Thee alone descends.

5 Bless the Lord of all creation,
Praise, with songs of adoration,
Saints on earth and heavenly host,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
