Words: Charles H. Spurgeon, 1866. Music: Hamburg, Lowell Mason, 1824; first appeared in The Boston Handel and Haydn Society Collection of Church Music, third edition, 1825 1 Amidst us our Belovèd stands, And bids us view His piercèd hands; Points to the wounded feet and side, Blest emblems of the Crucified. 2 What food luxurious loads the board, When, at His table, sits the Lord! The wine how rich, the bread how sweet, When Jesus deigns the guests to meet! 3 If now, with eyes defiled and dim, We see the signs, but see not Him; O, may His love the scales displace, And bid us see Him face to face! 4 Thou glorious Bridegroom of our hearts, Thy present smile a heaven imparts! O, lift the veil, if veil there be, Let every saint Thy glory see!
