1111. With Jesus in our midst

1 With Jesus in our midst
We gather round the board;
Though many, we are one in Christ,
One body in the Lord.

2 Our sins were laid on him
When bruised on Calvary;
For us he died, and rose again,
A pledge of victory.

3 Faith eats the bread of life,
And drinks the living wine;
Thus we, in love together knit,
On Jesus' breast recline.

4 Then let our powers unite,
His glorious name to raise;
And holy joy fill every mind,
And every voice be praise.
