O holy Jesu, Prince of Peace!
Thy peace be with us, gathering round Thy board.
Here, where the presence of an unseen Lord
Waits to be gracious charg'd with full releaase
To ev'ry heavy-laden soul which here remembers Thee,
O Prince of Peace!

Ours is the bond of love divine,
Which knits us each to all and all to each,
That love whose everlength'ning cords can reach
From the white choir around the heavn'ly shrine.
To those who come in faith today,
Here to remember Thee.
