Scripture: I Corinthians 16-17
Theme: Sacraments and Ordinances

    You satisfy the hungry heart with gift of finest wheat;
    Come give to us, O saving Lord, the bread of life to eat.

1.  As when the shepherd calls his sheep,
    They know and heed his voice;
    So when You call Your family, Lord,
    We follow and rejoice.

2.  With joyful lips we sing to You
    Our praise and gratitude
    That You should count us worthy, Lord,
    To share this heavenly food.

3.  Is not the cup we bless and share
    The blood of Christ outpoured?
    Do not one cup, one loaf, declare
    Our oneness in the Lord?

4.  The mystery of Your presence, Lord,
    No mortal tongue can tell:
    Whom all the world cannot contain
    Comes in our hearts to dwell.

5.  You give Yourself to us, O Lord;
    Then selfless let us be,
    To serve each other in Your name
    In truth and charity.
