Communion Sunday

Faith, Hope and Love

The blest memorials of thy grief,
The sufferings of thy death,
We come, dear Savior, to receive,
But would receive with faith.

The tokens sent us to relieve,
Our spirits when they droop,
We come, dear Savior, to receive
But would receive with hope.

The pledges thou wast pleased to leave
Our mournful minds to move,
We come, dear Savior, to receive,
But would receive with love.

Here in obedience to thy word,
We take the bread and wine,
The utmost we can do, dear Lord,
For all beyond is thine.

Increase our faith, and hope, and love,
Lord, give us all that's good;
We would thy full salvation prove,
And share thy flesh and blood.
