O let our entertainment now
That we may long to come again,
An HYMN after the Sacrament.
ORD, any mercy short of hell,
But have I eat the flesh of Christ,
Mysterious depths of endless love
. My Saviour's flesh is meat indeed,
This day Christ has refresh'd my soul
For which I magnify his name,
When shall my soul ascend on high,
Most Holy, Just, and True!
To him that sits upon the throne,
Be glory, blessing, strength, renown,
A SONG of Praise for the Lord's Supper.
Praise the Lord; with hymns of joy
O all ye saints of heav'n and earth,
Who spared not his only Son,
But gave him for us all,
And made him drink the cup of wrath,
Frail nature shrunk, and did request
And meekly yielding to the cross,
He dy'd indeed, but rose again,
That we poor sinners, lost and dead,
Good Lord! how many souls in hell
Doth vengeance vex and tear!
O! had not Jesus interpos'd,
His blood was shed instead of ours,
But shall we eat the flesh of Christ?
His flesh is heav'nly food indeed!
When shall our souls mount up to thee,
Most holy, just, and true,
To eat that bread, and drink that wine
An HYMN: A Longing for Heaven,
When shall I come to thee!
Thy gates are richly set with pearls,
Thy walls are all of precious stone,
Thy gardens and thy pleasant fruits
So sweet a sight by human eye
If heaven be thus glorious, Lord,
What folly is't that makes me loth
Reach down, reach down thine arm of grace,
When wilt thou come to me, O Lord!
My dear Redeemer is above,
And all my friends in Christ below.
Jerusalem! my happy home,
Then shall my labours have an end,
When once thy joys I see.
Rev. xxii. 20.
Come, Lord, Jesus.
