Come, Lord Je­sus, our Re­deem­er;
Come and list­en to our pray­er!
Come and bless us with Your pre­sence
At this ta­ble we pre­pare—
Alleluia, al­le­lu­ia,
Where Your hon­or we de­clare.

Send to us Your Spi­rit, Holy;
Send to us Your lov­ing grace;
Send to us Your in­vi­ta­tion
To be­come Your dwell­ing-place.
Alleluia, al­le­lu­ia,
Lord, we ev­er You em­brace.

Praise the God of our re­demp­tion;
Praise Him whom we glo­ri­fy.
Praise the Fa­ther and the Spi­rit,
Praise the Son of God most high—
Alleluia, al­le­lu­ia,
Praise, ex­tol and mag­ni­fy.
