The Bishop's Hymns - V

This cup is the new covenant. Luke xxii.20

Before Thy Table, Lord, I kneel
And clasp the cup of holy wine -
The great New Covenant's royal seal,
Authentic, visible, divine.

Thy two-fold grant, it all is here,
The death-bought peace, the cleansing power;
Sure is Thy seal, my title clear;
I claim the whole this blissful hour.
