1Jesus, Lord, forever living,
From Thy Church what glad thanksgiving
Should to Thee forever flow!
Thine this day our heart’s oblation,
All our praise and adoration,
All we are, and have, and know.
2Here may prayer and sins’ confession,
Perfumed by Thine intercession,
As sweet incense heavenward rise:
Here to contrite hearts and broken,
Given, O Lord, the secret token
Of accepted sacrifice.
3On the children of affliction,
Let Thy hands of benediction
Drop Thy comfort from above:
Be Thyself our hidden Manna,
And above us let the banner
Of Thy banquet house be love.
4Thus with Thee and Thine in union,
Glad we own the best communion
Of the saints’ unnumbered host,
Who with angels bow before Thee,
And with endless praise adore Thee,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Song of Songs2:4He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
John6:35And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
Revelation2:17He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
