Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Upon Thy Table, Lord, We Place

Upon thy table, Lord, we place

Full Text

1 Upon thy table, Lord, we place
these symbols of our work and thine,
life's food won only by thy grace,
who giv'st to all the bread and wine.

2 Within these simple things there lie
the height and depth of human life,
our prayer and thought, our tears and toils,
our hopes and fears, our joy and strife.

3 Accept them, Lord; from thee they come;
we take them humbly at thy hand.
These gifts of thine for higher use
we offer, as thou dost command.
