327. Jesus, to thy table led

7.7.7

Lacrymae:

Arthur S. Sullivan, 1872

Robert H. Baynes, 1864

Jesus, to thy table led,

Now let every heart be fed

With the true and living Bread.

While in penitence we kneel,

Thy blest presence let us feel,

All thy wondrous love reveal.

While on thy dear cross we gaze,

Mourning o'er our sinful ways,

Turn our sadness into praise.

When we taste the mystic wine,

Of thine outpoured Blood the sign;

Fill our hearts with love divine.

Draw us to thy wounded side,

Whence there flowed the healing tide;

There our sins and sorrows hide.

From the bonds of sin release;

Cold and wavering faith increase;

Lamb of God, grant us thy peace.

Lead us by thy piercèd hand,

Till around thy throne we stand,

In the bright and better land.

Amen.
