The mission of the Church of the Common Ground is to work with homeless people.

Words by Charles Wesley (1707-1788), a priest of The Church of England

Hymn Source = The Hymnal 1982, of The Episcopal Church

The Hymnal 1982 Companion states that the Standing Commission of Church Music changed one word:  “meet” to “right” at the end of the first verse.  I have restored the text to its original form.

“It is right and meet so to do.”–The Book of Common Prayer (1979)–Holy Eucharist, Rite One, page 333


1.  Glory, love, and praise, and honor for our food

now bestowed render we the Donor.

Bounteous God, we now confess thee:

God, who thus blessest us, right it is to bless thee.

2.  Thankful for our every blessing,

let us sing Christ the Spring, never, never ceasing.

Source of all our gifts and graces,

Christ we own; Christ alone calls for all our praises.

3.  He dispels our sin and sadness,

life imparts, cheers our hearts, fills with food and gladness.

Who himself for all hath given,

as he feeds, us he leads to a feast in heaven.
