We taste Thee, O Thou living bread,
We drink of Thee, the Fountain Head,
Our restless spirits yearn for Thee,
Glad, when Thy gracious smile we see:
O Jesu, ever with us stay!
Make all our moments calm and bright! Chase the dark night of sin away,
Shed o'er the world Thy holy light!
Blest feast of love divine!
That blood which flowed for sin,
O! if this glimpse of love
To see Thee face to face,
302. 8-6, 8-6, 8-8.
Loed, when before Thy Throne we meet,
Thy goodness to adore;
On us Thy blessing pour;
The body for our ransom given;
The blood in mercy shed;
Lord! let our souls be fed!
Be Thou, O Holy Spirit, nigh!
Accept the humble prayer,
The sinner's heartfelt tear!
This will I do, my dying Lord,
Thy body, broken for my sake,
The cup of blessing I take,
Can I Gethsemane forget,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,
When to the cross I turn mine eyes,
And rest on Calvary; 0 Lamb of God! my sacrifice,
I must remember Thee!
Eemember Thee, and all Thy pains,
And all Thy love to me!
Will I remember Thee!
And when these failing lips grow dumb, And thought and memory flee;
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come, Jesu! remember me. Amen.

Lobd, pour Thy Spirit from on high,
Graces and gifts to each supply,
Within Thy temple when they stand
Saviour, like stars in Thy right hand
Wisdom, and zeal, and love impart,
To bear Thy people in their heart,
And love the souls whom Thou dost love.
To watch and pray, and never faint,
To warn the sinner, cheer the saint,
To feed Thy lambs, and tend Thy sheep.
So, when their work is finished here,
So, when their Master shall appear,
Bow down Thine ear, Almighty Lord,
For all who preach Thy saying word,
In mercy, Father! now give heed,
And pour Thy Spirit's quickening breath
On those whom Thou hast called to feed
O Saviour! from Thy pierced hand
That those who in Thy presence stand
Blest Spirit! in their hearts abide,
And give them grace to watch and pray,
That as they seek Thy flock to guide,
O God! Thy saving mercy send,
To shield them in their strife with sin;
Grant them enduring to the end,
The crown of life at last to win. Amen.
