We Praise The Lord For Heavenly Bread

We praise the Lord for heav’nly bread,
With which his favour’d sons are fed;
We praise thee for that heav’nly feast,
Which Jesus with delight could taste.

He, while he sojourn’d here below,
Had meat which strangers could not know.
That meat he to his people gives;
And he, that tastes the banquet lives.

So let us live, sustain’d by grace,
Regal’d with fruits of righteousness.
Enter our hearts, all-gracious Lord!
And sup with us, and deck thy board.

Devotion, faith, and zealous love,
And hope that bears the soul above:
Be these our dainties, till we rise,
And taste the joys of paradise.
