James Montgomery (1771-1854) was an English Moravian, poet, political prisoner, and hymn writer.  Here is a link to my biographical post of him:

KRT

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Shepherd of souls, refresh and bless

Thy chosen pilgrim flock

With manna in the wilderness,

With water from the rock.

2.  We would not live by bread alone,

But by thy word of grace,

In strength of which we travel on

To our abiding place.

3.  Be known to us in breaking bread,

But do not then depart;

Saviour, abide with us, and spread

Thy table in our heart.

4.  Lord, sup with us in love divine;

Thy Body and thy blood,

That living bread, that heavenly wine,

Be our immortal food.
