Description: BROMLEY is often attributed to Joseph Haydn, whose 3-part harmonization may be found here as How oft, instinct with warmth divine. A second Jeremiah Clarke (c1743-1809) seems more plausible than the composer of the trumpet tune (d1707).

English.png English text

1. My God, and is Thy table spread?
And does thy cup with love o'erflow?
Thither be all Thy children led,
 And let them all its sweetness know.

2. Hail, sacred feast, wich Jesus makes,
Rich banquet of His flesh and blood!
Thrice happy he who here partakes
That sacred stream, that heavenly food!

3. Why are its emblems all in vain
Before unwilling hearts displayed?
Was not for you the victim slain?
Are you forbid the children's bread?

4. O let thy table honoured be,
And furnished well with joyful guests;
And may each soul salvation see,
That here its sacred pledged tastes.

5. Let crowds approach with hearts prepared,
With hearts inflamed let all attend;
Nor when we leaave our Father's board
The pleasure or the profit end.

6. Revive Thy dying churches, Lord,
And bid our drooping graces live;
And more, that energy afford
A Saviour's love alone can give.
