1. Lord, as we break this bread in sweet communion;
And as we take the cup at Christ's command:
May our remembrance bind us in union
With Thee and with Thy beloved Son.
Hear now our praise, our meditations bless,
And may our lives reflect our thankfulness.
2 Help us through solemn self-examination
To take these symbols of his perfect love:
Help us to conquer each new temptation,
And with each wayward impulse strive.
0 God in heav'n, in lovingkindness heed,
As now through Jesus we Thy children plead.
