HYMN 2

S. M.

Communion with Christ, and with saints. 1 Cor. 10:16,17

[Jesus invites his saints

To meet around his board;

Here pardoned rebels sit and hold

Communion with their Lord.

For food he gives his flesh,

He bids us drink his blood;

Amazing favor! matchless grace

Of our descending God!]

This holy bread and wine

Maintains our fainting breath,

By union with our living Lord,

And int'rest in his death.

Our heav'nly Father calls

Christ and his members one;

We the young children of his love,

And he the first-born Son.

We are but several parts

Of the same broken bread;

One body hath its several limbs,

But Jesus is the head.

Let all our powers be joined

His glorious name to raise;

Pleasure and love fill every mind,

And every voice be praise.
