3 We taste Thee, O Thou Living Bread,
And long to feast upon Thee still !
And thirst our souls from Thee to fill !
4 Our restless spirits yearn for Thee,
Where'er our changeful lot is cast;
Blest, when our faith can hold Thee fast.
5 O Jesus, ever with us stay,
Make all our moments calm and bright,
For Thy Flesh is meat indeed ;
2 Vine of heaven, Thy Blood supplies
This blest Cup of sacrifice ;
Spreads forth her wings of love,
Begotten from above.
By God the Spirit's power,
In childhood's helpless hour.
E’en now around the font,
Unseen by mortal eye,
The wondrous mystery.
There to receive their charge
In readiness they stand,
To their own happy land.
And all the host of heaven
Rejoice before the Lord,
A child of God restored.
Praise Him who made,-praise Him
Who did redeem our race;
With pure baptismal grace. Amen.
Through Thine appointed outward sign;
Of covenant blessings more divine;
Beyond the brightest hope he knew. 2 Type of the Spirit's living flow,
In faith we pour the hallowed stream ;
The solemn pledge of truth to Him,
3 Baptized into the Trinity,
Adopted children of Thy grace,
A humble, pure, and faithful race:
With the Shepherd's kindest care,
While the lambs Thy bosom share;
Now, these little ones receiving,
Fold them in Thy gracious arm;
Only there, secure from harm!
3 Never, from Thy pasture roving,
Let them be the lion's prey ;
Keep them all life's dangerous way:
4. Then, within Thy fold eternal,
Let them find a resting-place,
Drink the rivers of Thy grace!
5* Glory give we, praise and blessing,
To the Father, and the Son,
One true God, the Three in One. Amen.
O Christ, who didst at Pentecost
Forth to the battle may they go,
3 Come, ever-blessed Spirit, come !
And make Thy servants' hearts Thy home;
O Trinity in Unity,
1 THINE for ever! God of love,
Hear us from Thy throne above ;
