Again We Meet around the Board

 

Lyrics

  1. 1. Again we meet around the board

    Of Jesus, our redeeming Lord,

    With faith in his atoning blood,

    Our only access unto God.

  2. 2. He left his Father’s courts on high,

    With man to live, for man to die,

    A world to purchase and to save

    And seal a triumph o’er the grave.

  3. 3. Help us, O God, to realize

    The great atoning sacrifice,

    The gift of thy beloved Son,

    The Prince of Life, the Holy One.

  4. 4. Oh, bless us, Lord, for Jesus’ sake,

    That we may worthily partake

    These emblems of the flesh and blood

    Of our Redeemer, Savior, God.
