1 The King of heav'n a feast has made
And to his much lov'd friends,
The faint, the famish'd, and the sad,

2 Lo, at thy gracious bidding, Lord,
Tho' vile and base we come,
O, speak the reconciling word,
And welcome wand'rers home.

3 Impart to all thy flock below
The blessings of thy death:
On ev'ry mourning soul bestow
Thy love, thy hope, thy faith.

4 May each, with strength from heav'n end'd
Say, "My beloved's mine;
"I eat his flesh, and drink his blood,
"In signs of bread and wine."
