Loving God,

we give you thanks

for restoring us in your image

and nourishing us with spiritual food

in the Sacrament of Christ’s Body and Blood.

Now send us forth

a people, forgiven, healed, renewed;

that we may proclaim your love to the world

and continue in the risen life of Christ our Savior.  Amen.

God of abundance,

you have fed us

with the bread of life and cup of salvation;

you have united us

with Christ and one another;

and you have made us one

with all your people in heaven and on earth.

Now send us forth

in the power of your Spirit,

that we may proclaim your redeeming love to the world

and continue for ever

in the risen life of Christ our Savior.  Amen.

Here at Thy Table, Lord   Leave a comment

Text (1891) by May P. Hoyt, of whom little information has survived; the primary assumption is that she was a member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), in whose hymnals this text has mainly appeared

Hymn Source = New Worship and Song with Worship Services and Source Materials (1942), General Council of the Congregational Christian Churches in the United States

This hymn shares a tune with “Break Thou the Bread of Life.”

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

Here at thy table, Lord,

This sacred hour,

O, let us feel thee near,

In loving power,

Calling our thoughts away

From self and sin,

As to thy banquet hall

We enter in.

+++++

Sit at the feast, dear Lord,

Break thou the bread;

Fill thou the cup that brings

Life to the dead;

That we may find in thee

Pardon and peace,

And from all bondage win

A full release.

+++++

So shall our life of faith

Be full, be sweet,

And we shall find our strength

For each day meet;

Fed by thy living bread,

All hunger past,

We shall be satisfied

And saved at last.

+++++

Come then, O holy Christ,

Feed us, we pray;

Touch us with thy pierced hand

Each common day,

Making this earthly life

Full of thy grace,

Till in the home of heaven

We find our place.

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

With deep humility, O Lord,

We come before Thy face;

We are unworthy, but Thy Word

Assures us to Thy grace.

+++++

This Sacrament Thou hast prepared,

In which Thy love shines forth,

It shows how richly Thou hast cared

For Thy redeemed on earth.

+++++

Here we receive, through bread and wine,

Thy body and Thy blood,

We are refreshed by grace divine

With this most precious food.

+++++

This is a wondrous mystery,

But we believe Thy Word;

All who confess their sins will see

How Thou dost life afford.

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

1.  How sweet and silent is the place,

My God, alone with thee,

Awaiting here thy touch of grace,

Thy heavenly mystery!

2.  So many ways thou hast, dear Lord,

My longing heart to fill,–

Thy lovely world, thy spoken word,

The doing thy sweet will,

3.  Giving thy children living bread,

Leading thy weak ones on,

The touch of dear hands on my head,

The thought of loved ones gone!

4.  Lead me by many paths, dear Lord,

But always in thy way,

And help me make my earth a heaven,

Till next Communion Day.

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

1.  I come to Thee, O blessed Lord,

Invited by Thy gracious word

To this Thy feast, to sup with Thee,

Grant that a worthy guest I be.

2.  I come to Thee with sin and grief,

For Thou alone canst give relief,

Thy death for me, dear Lord, I plead:

O Jesus, help me in my need!

3.  Shouldst Thou a strict account demand,

Who could, O Lord, before Thee stand?

Purge all my secret sins away:

Be Thou, O Christ, the sinner’s stay!

4.  O Jesus, Lamb of God, alone,

Who didst for all our sins atone,

Though I have sinned and gone astray,

Turn not, O Lord, Thy guest away!

5.  O Jesus, Lamb of God alone,

Who didst for our sins atone,

Be merciful, I Thee implore,

Have mercy, Lord, for evermore!

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

1.  O Food of men wayfaring,

The bread of angels sharing,

O Manna from on high!

We hunger; Lord, supply us,

Nor thy delights deny us,

Whose hearts to thee draw nigh.

2.  O stream of love past telling,

O purest fountain, welling

From out the Saviour’s side!

We faint with thirst; revive us,

Of thine abundance give us,

And all we need provide.

3.  O Jesus, by thee bidden,

We here adore thee, hidden

‘Neath forms of bread and wine.

Grant when the veil is riven,

We may behold, in heaven,

Thy countenance divine.
