The Communion Sabbath

Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face;

Here would I touch and handle things unseen;

Here grasp with firmer hand and eternal grace

And all my weariness upon Thee lean.

Here would I feed upon the bread of God,

Here drink with Thee the royal wine of Heaven;

Here would I lay aside each earthly load,

Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven.

This is the hour of banquet and of song;

This is the Heavenly table spread for me;

Here let me feast, and feasting still prolong

The brief, bright hour of fellowship with Thee.

--Horatius Bonar
