Hymn 3:2 [Jesus Invites His Saints]
by [?]

Communion with Christ, and with saints,
1 Cor. 10. 16 17.

[Jesus invites his saints
To meet around his board;
Here pardon’d rebels sit, and hold
Communion with their Lord.

For food he gives his flesh,
He bids us drink his blood,
Amazing favour! matchless grace
Of our descending God!]

This holy bread and wine
Maintains our fainting breath,
By union with our living Lord,
And interest in his death.

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

We are but several parts
Of the same broken bread;
One body hath its several limbs,
But Jesus is the head.

Let all our powers be join’d
His glorious Name to raise;
Pleasure and love fill every mind,
And every voice be praise.
