Title: We Come as Guests Invited
Composer: Johann Steurlein, 1575
Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith, 1975
Theme: Sacraments and Ordinances
1. We come as guests invited When Jesus bids us dine, His friends on earth united To share the bread and wine; The bread of life is broken, The wine is freely poured For us, in solemn token Of Christ our dying Lord. 2. We eat and drink, receiving From Christ the grace we need, And in our hearts believing On Him by faith we feed; With wonder and thanksgiving For love that knows no end, We find in Jesus living Our ever-present Friend. 3. One bread is ours for sharing, One single fruitful vine, Our fellowship declaring Renewed in bread and wine: Renewed, sustained, and given By token, sign, and word, The pledge and seal of heaven, The love of Christ our Lord.
