Hymn Source = The Presbyterian Hymnal:  Hymns, Psalms, and Spiritual Songs (1990), of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

Words by Miriam Drury, 1970

A slightly different version appeared in The Worshipbook:  Services and Hymns (1972), of the Cumberland Presbyterian Chuch, the Presbyterian Church in the United States, and The United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America.  (I own a copy of each hymnal.)

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

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

1.  Become to us the living bread

By which the Christian life is fed,

Renewed, and greatly comforted,

Alleluia! Alleluia!

2.  Become the never failing wine,

The spring of joy that shall incline

Our hearts to hear the covenant sign,

Alleluia! Alleluia!

3.  May Christians all with one accord

Unite around the sacred board,

To praise your name, O Lord,

Alleluia! Alleluia!
