A Communion Prayer

Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face
Here would I touch and handle things unseen
Here grasp with firmer hand the eternal grace
And all my weariness upon Thee lean

Here would I feed upon the bread of God
Here would I drink with Thee the royal wine of heaven
Here would I lay aside each earthly load
Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven

Mine is the sin, but Thine the righteousness
Mine is the guilt, but Thine the cleansing blood
I find in You my refuge and my peace -
Thy blood, Thy righteousness, O Lord, my God

- Horatius Bonar
