Jesus Invites His Saints

Text:  Isaac Watts 
Music:  A. E. Lord 
Tune:  St. Austin  66.86
OHT Incipit:  

Jesus invites His saints
To meet around His board;
Here pardoned sinners 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!

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 joined
His glorious name to raise;
Pleasure and love fill every mind
And every voice be praise.
