Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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.
