Lord, at thy table I behold

Full Text

1 Lord, at Thy table I behold
The riches of Thy grace;
But wonder, most of all, that I
Should find a welcome place:

2 I that am all defiled with sin,
A rebel to my God;
I that have crucified His Son,
And trampled on His blood.

3 What strange, surprising grace is this,
That such a soul has room!
My Saviour takes me by the hand,
My Jesus bids me come.

4 "Eat, oh my friends," the Saviour cries,
"The feast was made for you;
For you I groaned, and bled, and died,
And rose, and triumphed too."

5 With trembling faith, and bleeding hearts,
Lord, we accept Thy love:
'Tis a rich banquet we have had,
What will it be above!

6 Had I ten thousand hearts, dear Lord,
I'd give them all to Thee;
Had I ten thousand tongues, they all
Should join the harmony.

Notes

Lord, at Thy Table I behold. S. Stennett. [Holy Communion.] Appeared in Hymns for All Denominations, London, 1782, No. 42, and in Rippon's Baptist Selection 1787, No. 482, in 7 stanzas of 4 lines, and entitled "A Sacramental Hymn." It was given as by "Dr. J. Stennett"; but the "J." is a misprint for "S." This error is repeated in most collections. The use of this hymn, usually in an abridged form, is some¬what extensive in Great Britain and America, and especially amongst the Baptists.

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
