Lyrics

  1. 1. O Lord of Hosts, we now invoke
    Thy Spirit most divine
    To cleanse our hearts while we partake
    The broken bread and wine.
  2. 2. May we forever think of thee
    And of thy suff'rings sore,
    Endured for us on Calvary,
    And praise thee evermore.
  3. 3. Prepare our minds that we may see
    The beauties of thy grace,
    Salvation purchased on that tree
    For all who seek thy face.
  4. 4. As brethren, let us ever live
    In fellowship and peace!
    Forgive, that God may us forgive,
    That love may still increase.
  5. 5. May union, peace, and love abound,
    And perfect harmony,
    And joy in one continual round
    Through all eternity.
  6. Text: Andrew Dalrymple, 1817-1890.
    Music: George Careless, 1839-1932.
