Hymn using same tune: Tune 2: #856


Dear Lord, we thank Thee for this bread,

It is a sign divine;

In it we see the mysteries

Of God's unique design.


This bread Thy body signifies,

Which Thou hast giv'n for us,

That we may share Thy life divine,

Partaking of Thee thus.


For us Thy body Thou didst break

That Thou may thus impart

Thyself as life to us that we

May be Thy counterpart.


This bread thus also signifies

Thy body mystical,

Of which we living members are,

With Thee identical.


Though we are many grains of wheat,

Yet all one loaf, one bread;

Remembering Thee in such a way,

With Thee we all are fed.


As of this bread we all commune,

Thou, Lord, dost satisfy,

With all the saints we fellowship,

And Thee we testify.
