689. S. M. Furnesy. A Communion Hymn.
1 O, for a prophet's fire,
O, for an angel's tongue,
To speak the mighty love of Him
Who on the cross was hung.
2 In vain our hearts attempt,
In language meet, to tell
How through a thousand sorrows burned
That flame unquenchable.
3 Yet would we praise that love,
Beyond expression dear:
Come, gather round this table, then,
And celebrate it here.
