324. Shepherd of souls, refresh and bless

C.M.

St. Agnes (Dykes):

John Bacchus Dykes, 1866

James Montgomery, 1825;

Alt.;

cento.

Shepherd of souls, refresh and bless

Thy chosen pilgrim flock,

With manna in the wilderness,

With water from the rock.

297

Hungry and thirsty, faint and weak,

As thou when here below,

Our souls the joys celestial seek

Which from thy sorrows flow.

We would not live by bread alone,

But by thy word of grace,

In strength of which we travel on

To our abiding-place.

Be known to us in breaking bread,

But do not then depart;

Savior, abide with us, and spread

Thy table in our heart.

Lord, sup with us in love divine;

Thy Body and thy Blood,

That living bread, that heavenly wine,

Be our immortal food.

Amen.
