Representative Text

1 We praise the Lord for heav'nly bread,
With which his favour'd sons are fed;

Had meat which strangers could not know.
That meat he to his people gives;
And he, that tastes the banquet lives.

3 So let us live, sustain'd by grace,
Regal'd with fruits of righteousness.
Enter our hearts, all-gracious Lord!
And sup with us, and deck thy board.

4 Devotion, faith, and zealous love,
And hope that bears the soul above:
Be these our dainties, till we rise,
And taste the joys of paradise.
