And make Thy nature known ; i LORD, at Thy table I behold
Affix Thy blesséd Spirit's seal,
And stamp us for Thine own.
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.
2 While thus we mourn we would rejoice, 3 What strange surprising grace is this,
And as Thy cross we see,
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

Should join the harmony,

Thy Blood hath purified. 2 O hold Thou up my goings,
And lead from strength to strength,
I may appear at length:
To join that ransomed throng ;
That everlasting song.
That even saints can know,
Wherever Thou dost go.
I ask to win above;
O Thou Eternal Love !
