|Text:||Thy Broken Body, Gracious Lord|
|Author:||Samuel P. Tregelles|
1 Thy broken body, gracious Lord,
is shadowed by this broken bread;
the wine which in this cup is poured
points to the blood which Thou hast shed.
2 And while we meet together thus,
we show that we are one in Thee;
Thy precious blood was shed for us,
Thy death, O Lord, hast set us free!
3 Brethren in Thee, in union sweet,
forever be Thy grace adored!
'Tis in Thy Name that now we meet,
and Thou art with us, gracious Lord.
4 We have one hope that Thou wilt come,
Thee in the air we wait to see,
when Thou wilt give Thy saints a home,
and we shall ever reign with Thee.
