Table of love - this costly spread
speaks of God's Son, once sacrificed;
and as we eat the broken bread
we feed on him, the risen Christ.

Table of life - for peace with God
was bought for us when Jesus died.
That precious offering of his blood
our guilty souls has purified.


Table of joy - for since he saw
glory beyond his cross of shame,
its sorrow and its pain he bore
so we are welcomed in his name.

Table of grace - in heaven above
sits our High Priest to intercede.
We see by faith his scars of love
and find his strength to meet our need.

Table of hope - dear Lord, this sign
proclaims your death until you come
and gather us, to taste new wine
and feast in your eternal home.
