1.  Loving God, as now we gather,

of that love unworthy still,

give us courage to surrender

rebel heart and stubborn will,

and in us, in faith maturing,

all your promises fulfill.

2.  Holy Lord, as here

you give us bread and wine, as means of grace,

grant to all who call you Savior,

now to meet you face to face,

and to own, in silent wonder,

Lord, how holy is this place.
