1 To-day Immanuel feeds his sheep,
The purchase of his blood;
To-day Jehovah keeps a feast,
For all the sons of God.
2 The bread of God is freely giv'n,
The food for saints above;
The living bread sent down from heav'n,
The fruit of pard'ning love.
3 Lo! Christ our shepherd, gave us life,
To answer all our need;
His body crucifi'd is meat,
His blood is drink indeed.
4 Ye hungry, thirsty souls draw near,
And living bread receive;
Taste the provisions of your God,
And freely eat and live.
