Salvation Sensitivity


Tune: Old Yeavering

('Like a mighty river flowing')


Since 'tis you Lord bid us approach

Though on holy ground we encroach

Yet you bid us welcome, and to

Feed and drink on you anew


For no other has paid the price

Your offering it does suffice

Bread and wine for us are share here

As we to you do draw near


Yet you with us still abiding

By your Spirit, still residing

In hearts true that are believing

That worship you, to you sing


At Last Supper you a meal shared

In the Upper Room was prepared

You and your disciples eating

Fine fare, and with you drinking


That bread shared would be your body

That wine would be your blood shed free

New Covenant, that we may be

Saved through you, we do it see


Lifting praises, adoration

Salvation unto each nation

We give thanks, communion holy

Partaking, lowly, humbly


Hope we have in you our Saviour

You have given grace and favour

Here remember we your death shown

You atone, and you alone

  • Comment from author about the poem: A hymn-poem in 8887 metre. Preparing for Holy Communion, whether a church celebrates it weekly, or less often. I was reminded again, reading the Gethsemane story, that if Jesus had not gone through that agony, then on to death, then resurrection, there would be no hope at all for anyone (last verse). Never mind any complicated rituals there may be. They may have their place too I suppose. Also it is the annual Jewish Day Of Atonement today (Saturday).

        Ohhh, I'll appreciate all non-swooning words! And I bet I secretly appreciates swooning words too. lol. The only thing too sacred it seems, is that Jews don't say YHWH (Jehovah).

        The tune name is an actual place in the Northumberland area.
