Representative Text

1 Saviour of our ruined race,
Fountain of redeeming grace,
Let us now thy fullness see
While we here converse with thee;
Hearken to our ardent prayer,
Let us all thy blessings share.

2 While we thus with glad accord
Meet around thy table, Lord,
Bid us feast with joy divine
On the appointed bread and wine;
Emblems may they truly prove
Of our Saviour's bleeding love.

3 Weak, unworthy, sinful, vile,
Yet we seek the heavenly smile;
Thou canst all our sins forgive,
Thou canst bid us look and live.
Lord, we wonder and adore!
O, for grace to love thee more!
