To this rich gospel feast of love--
This pledge is but the prelude giv'n

2 How great the blessing, thus to meet
Around the sacramental board,
And hold by faith communion sweet,
With Christ our dear and common Lord.

3 And if so sweet this feast below,
What will it be to meet above,
Where all we see, and feel, and know,
Are fruits of everlasting love!

4 Soon shall we tune the heav'nly lyre
While list'ning worlds the song approve,
Eternity itself expire,
Ere we exhaust the theme of love.
