We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Spread the table of the Lord

Spread the table of the Lord

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative 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.
