1 Lord of life, on this Thy day,
We have met to praise and pray;
Gather us, O God our king,
’Neath the shadow of Thy wing.

Refrain:
Brightest day of all the seven,
Type of endless day in Heaven,
On this day, with heavenly bread,
May we, Lord, by Thee be fed.

2 May our praises to Thee given,
Mingle with the songs of Heaven;
May our prayers, like incense, be
Pleasing as they rise to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Close, O Christ, to Thee we draw;
Clear to us now make Thy law;
Open Thou our eyes to see
How each lesson points to Thee. [Refrain]
