And thine own Flesh feeds ev'ry Guest.


Our Faith adores thy bleeding Love,
And trusts for Life in one that dy'd,
We hope for heav'nly Crowns above,
From a Redeemer Crucify'd.

He that was Dead has left his Tomb,
He Lives above their utmost rage,

And we are waiting till he come. <

Are favour'd like us,
Forgiven, supplied,

And banquetted thus;
By God our good Father,
Who gave us his Son,
And sent him to gather
His Children in one.

Before the World was: God from everlasting

Be blest; and again, Blest to everlasting,

Amen and Amen.
