In Christ whose steps in patient grace display
That evenness of spirit in each day
Which only His obedience could express.
And feed on Him who, if He came to bless
Must bear the burden of our sins away,
And is again, if we should go astray,
Our source of peace and grace as we confess.
Together let us feast upon the Lord,
Whose fullest savour is for God alone,
Whose strength and love form strength and love in us;
Consider too God's pleasure is toward
His saints whose love for Him makes them "well known",
Formed into one, and also glorious.
