1. While in sweet communion feeding
On this earthly bread and wine,
Savior, may we see Thee bleeding
On the cross, to make us Thine,
On the cross, to make us Thine.

2. Tho' unseen, now be Thou near us;
With the still small voice of love,
Whisp'ring words of peace to cheer us,
Ev'ry doubt and fear remove,
Ev'ry doubt and fear remove.

3. Bring before us all the story
Of Thy life and death of woe;
And, with hopes of endless glory,
Wean our hearts from all below,
Wean our hearts from all below.
