1 O God, unseen yet ever near,
your presence may we feel;
and thus, inspired with holy fear,
around your table kneel.

2 Here may your faithful people know
the blessings of your love,
the streams that through the desert flow,
the manna from above.

3 We come, obedient to your word,
to feast on heavenly food;
to eat the body of the Lord,
and drink his precious blood.

4 O living Bread, enduring Vine,
your words we shall obey,
and go, renewed with strength divine,
rejoicing on our way.
