The Lord’s Supper. 1 Cor. 5. 11; Luke 22. 19, 20; 1 Cor. 11. 23-28

W. Gadsby   C.M.

1
Once more, like children, we are come,
To banquet with our God;
May each one feel himself at home,
And feast upon thy love.

2
While we receive the bread and wine,
As emblems of thy death,
Lord, raise each soul above the sign,
To feast on Christ by faith.

3
[We would not come as strangers, Lord,
Who only see the sign,
But, as the objects of Christ’s love,
Would feel we’re one in him.]

4
Like free-born sons, we would be free
From every legal chain;
Praise him who brought our liberty,
And ever with him reign.
