Here the Saviour's Body broken,

Here the Blood which Jesus shed I IN the Name of God the Father,

Mystic Food of life eternalIn the Name of God the Son,

See, for our refreshment spread. In the Name of God the Spirit,

One in Three, and Three in One, 4 Here shall highest praise be offered,. In the Name which highest angels Here shall meekest prayer be poured,

Speak not ere they veil their face, Here, with body, soul, and spirit, Crying, Holy, Holy, Holy,

God Incarnate be adored : Come we to this sacred place. Holy Jesus, for Thy coming,

May Thy love our hearts prepare ; 2 Lo, in wondrous condescension,

Thine we fain would have them wholly, Jesus stoops from His high throne ; i

Enter, Lord, and tarry there.
Though in lively symbols hidden,
Faith and love His presence own:

DOXOLOGY.
When the Lord His temple visits,
Let the listening earth be still ;

PRAISE the God of our salvation; May the Spirit's sweet indwelling

Praise the Father's boundless love ; Each believing bosom fill.

Praise the Lamb, our expiation;

Praise the Spirit from above, 3 Here, in figure represented,

Author of the new creation,
See the Passion once again ;

Him by whom our spirits live ;
Here behold the Lamb most Holy, Undivided adoration
As for our Redemption slain :

To the One Jehovah give.

14 Now, Saviour, now Thyself reveal,

And make Thy nature known ; i LORD, at Thy table I behold

Affix Thy blesséd Spirit's seal,
The wonders of Thy grace;

And stamp us for Thine own.
But most of all admire that I
Should find a welcome place :

651

I PREPARE us, Lord, to view Thy cross, 2 I, that am all defiled with sin,

Who all our griefs hast borne ; A rebel to my God;

To look on Thee whom we have pierced, I, that have crucified His Son,

To look on Thee, and mourn.
And trampled on His blood.

2 While thus we mourn we would rejoice, 3 What strange surprising grace is this,

And as Thy cross we see,
That such a soul has room !

Let each exclaim in faith and hope, My Saviour takes me by the hand,

The Saviour died for me! My Jesus bids me come. 4 Eat, O my friends, the Saviour cries,

1 With humble faith, and thankful heart, The feast was made for you:

Lord, I accept Thy love: For you I groaned, and bled, and died,

'Tis a rich banquet I have had, And rose, and triumphed too.

What will it be above! 650

2 Ye saints below, and hosts of heaven, 1 Jesus, at whose supreme command, Join all your praising powers; • We now approach to God,

No theme is like redeeming love, Before us in Thy vesture stand,

No Saviour is like ours. Thy vesture dipped in blood. 3 Had I ten thousand hearts, dear Lord, 2 Obedient to Thy gracious word,

I'd give them all to Thee;
We break the hallowed bread, Had I ten thousand tongues, they all
Commemorate our dying Lord,

Should join the harmony,
And trust on Thee to feed.

DOXOLOGY.
3 The cup of blessing, blest by Thee, To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Let it Thy blood impart;

The God whom we adore,
The bread Thy mystic body be,

Be glory as it was, is now,
And cheer each languid heart.

And shall be evermore,

654 1 Ye sin-sick souls, draw near

| 1 AUTHOR of life divine, And banquet with your King ;

Who hast a table spread, His royal bounty share,

Furnished with mystic Wine And loud hosannas sing:

And everlasting Bread: Here mercy reigns, here peace abounds, Preserve the life Thyself hast given, Here's blood to heal your dreadful And feed and train us up for heaven! wounds.

2 Our needy souls sustain 2 Oh wondrous love and grace!

With fresh supplies of love, Did Jesus die for me?

Till all Thy life we gain, Were all my numerous debts

And all Thy fulness prove; Discharged on Calvary?

And strengthened by Thy perfect grace, Yes, Jesus died, the work is done;

Behold, without a veil, Thy face. He did for all my sins atone.

DOXOLOGY 3 On earth I'll sing His love,

To God the Father, Son, In heaven I too shall join

And Spirit ever blest, The ransomed of the Lord,

Eternal Three in One, In accents all divine ;

All worship be addressed : And see my Saviour face to face,

As heretofore it was, is now, And ever dwell in His embrace.

And shall be so, for evermore!

1 BREAD of the world in mercy broken,

Wine of the soul in mercy shed,
By Whom the words of life were spoken,

And in Whose death our sins are dead:
2 Look on the heart by sorrow broken,

Look on the tears by sinners shed,
And be Thy feast to us the token

That by Thy grace our souls are fed.
BRISTOL. 75 & 6s.

1 0 Bread to pilgrims given,

O Food that angels eat,
O Manna sent from heaven,

For heaven-born natures meet!
Give us, for Thee long pining,

To eat till richly filled ;
Till, earth's delights resigning,

Our every wish is stilled ! 2 O Water, life bestowing,

From out the Saviour's heart,
A fountain purely flowing,

A fount of love Thou art !
Oh let us, freely tasting,

Our burning thirst assuage !
Thy sweetness, never wasting,

Avails from age to age. 3 Jesus, this feast receiving,

We Thee unseen adore;
Thy faithful word believing,

We take, and doubt no more :
Give us, Thou true and loving,

On earth to live in Thee;
Then, death the veil removing,

Thy glorious face to see!

1658
1 LORD JESUS, by Thy Passion,

To Thee I make my prayer;
Thou who in mercy smitest,

Have mercy, Lord, and spare:
O wash me in the fountain

That floweth from Thy side ;
O clothe me in the raiment

Thy Blood hath purified. 2 O hold Thou up my goings,

And lead from strength to strength,
That unto Thee in Zion

I may appear at length:
O make my spirit worthy

To join that ransomed throng ;
O teach my lips to utter

That everlasting song.
3 O give that last, best blessing

That even saints can know,
To follow in Thy footsteps

Wherever Thou dost go.
Not wisdom, might, or glory,

I ask to win above;
I ask for Thee, Thee only,

O Thou Eternal Love !
