Jesus invites his saints

Jesus invites his saints
to come to him and dine;
here pardoned rebels meet their Lord
through signs of bread and wine.

2. For food he gives his flesh,
he bids us drink his blood;
amazing favour! matchless grace
of our descending God!

3. So shall this bread and wine
maintain our fainting breath,
by union with our living Lord,
and interest in his death.

4. Our heavenly Father calls
Christ and his members one;
we the young children of his love,
and he the first-born Son.

5. We are but several parts
of this same broken bread;
one body has its several limbs,
but Jesus is the head.

6. Let all our powers be joined
his glorious name to raise;
pleasure and love fill every mind
and every voice be praise.
