Christ My Song - 1194
At our Father's table meeting
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
At our Father's table meeting.
"We are all partakers of that one bread."
(1 Corinthians 10,17)
1. At our Father's table meeting,
all our sins by him forgiv'n;
children's bread together eating,
bread that cometh down from heav'n;
let us banish, let us banish
hence the old unhallowed leav'n.
2. Blessed is the name we think of,
when together breaking bread;
blessed is the cup we drink of,
type of blood for sinners shed:
happy are we, happy are we,
quickened by the Lord, and fed.
3. Let us walk in love, united
to our living head above;
let us sing his praise, delighted,
sing the praise of him we love:
Saviour, bless us! Saviour, bless us!
Let us all thy goodness prove.
4. Standing in the Saviour's merit,
we have peace, and we are blessed;
taught and guided by the Spirit,
we have hope of future rest:
this we wait for, this we wait for,
and the Saviour's time is best.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 488.
