Around Thy table, Lord, we meet
In loving memory
Of Thee, who art our Mercy Seat,
Rejoicing in communion sweet
And fellowship with Thee.
Thy body broke, Thy blood outpoured,
In bread and wine we see;
And thus again with one accord,
Thy death we show, Thy love record,
Until we feast with Thee.
Thou Lord-the head, One body we,
One! in diversity.
Nor Jew, nor Greek, nor bond, nor free,
A glorious perfect Unity -
Thy body, then, may we discern,
And cheered and strengthened be;
That strong in faith our hearts may burn
And agonize for Thy return
To reign on earth with Thee.
