Full Text

1 Spread the table of the Lord,
Break the bread and pour the wine;
Gathered at the sacred board,
We would taste the feast divine.

2 Saints and martyrs of the faith
To the Cross have turned their eyes,
Sharing, in their life and death,
That eternal sacrifice.

3 Humbly now our place we claim
In that glorious company,
Proud confessors of the name,
Breaking bread, O Christ, with Thee.

4 By the memory of Thy love,
To the glory of the Lord,
Here we raise Thy Cross above,
Gird us with Thy Spirit's sword.

5 Guided by Thy mighty hand,
All Thy mind we would fulfil,
Loyal to Thy least command,
Serving Thee with steadfast will.
