The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

HYMN 15 Our Lord Jesus at his own table

C. M.

Our Lord Jesus at his own table

[The memory of our dying Lord

Awakes a thankful tongue:

How rich he spread his royal board,

And blessed the food, and sung!

Happy the men that eat this bread;

But doubly blest was he

That gently bowed his loving head,

And leaned it, Lord, on thee.

By faith the same delights we taste

As that great favorite did;

And sit and lean on Jesus' breast,

And take the heav'nly bread.]

Down from the palace of the skies,

Hither the King descends:

|Come, my beloved, eat,| he cries;

|And drink salvation, friends.

[|My flesh is food and physic too,

A balm for all your pains;

And the red streams of pardon flow

From these my pierced veins.|]

Hosannah to his bounteous love

For such a taste below!

And yet he feeds his saints above

With nobler blessings too.

[Come the dear day, the glorious hour,

That brings our souls to rest!

Then we shall need these types no more,

But dwell at th' heav'nly feast.]
