Once More Around Thy Table, Lord

by Miss Christiana Helene von Poseck


Tune: Woodworth L.M.


1 ONCE more around Thy table, Lord,
Obedient to Thy parting word,
Our hearts from earthly care set free
Have in Thy death remembered Thee.

2 Thyself Thou gavest, Son of God:
In love to us didst shed Thy blood;
Thyself Thou gavest to fulfil
The Father's own eternal will.

3 Thyself Thou gavest: may that word
Rest with us now in parting, Lord,
And lead us in devotion meet
To lay our lives at Thy blest feet.

4 Thyself Thou gavest, Lord: and we
Would wholly give ourselves to Thee,
In simple faith and fervent love
To serve Thee till we meet above.
