769. My God, Your Table Now Is Spread

1 My God, your table now is spread.
Your cup with love does overflow;
May all your children here be led,
And let them your sweet mercies know.

2 Oh, let your table honored be,
And furnished well with joyful guests;
And may each soul salvation see,
That here its sacred pledges tastes.

3 Drawn by your quickening grace, O Lord.
In countless numbers let them come
And gather from their Father's board
The Bread that lives beyond the tomb.

4 Nor let your spreading Gospel rest,
Till through the world your truth has run,
Till with this Bread shall all be blessed
Who see the light or feel the sun.
