Eucharist

At Communion by John Newton Brown (1828)

O, WHY, in this season of gladness, should wander
	One thought of my heart, blessed Savior, from thee?
Seal, seal me thine own, while I silently ponder
	Thy love to a sinner and outcast like me!
Thou hast sought me, and saved me; and now at thy table
	I meet thee and thine, in the wine and the bread;
O, in this sweet communion thy servant enable
	To learn the devotion that follows the dead!

John Newton Brown, 1828.
