Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

I Come O Savior

Background

This song is a new setting of a traditional hymn.  "I Come O Savior To Your Table" was written by Friedrich Heyder and translated for use in American Lutheran congregations.  This great text points to the comfort of the grace of God given in the bread and wine, the body and blood of the Savior.  We come to him restless, oppressed, and heavy laden, and find mercy, grace and strength.

 

Lyrics

Chorus
Jesus, oh may your body and blood
Be for my soul the highest good
Jesus, oh may your body and blood
Bring me the highest good

Verse 1
I come O Savior to your table
For weak and weary is my soul
You Bread of Life alone are able
To satisfy and make me whole

Verse 2
Restless am I and heavy laden
With sin my soul is sore oppressed
Receive me graciously and gladden
My heart that here is now your guest

Verse 3
Your heart is filled with fervent yearning
That I a sinner come to you
I Lord to your sure mercy turning
My ancient bond of faith renew

Verse 4
In hope I come to your high table
Your testament of deepest love
For by its grace I now am able
To know the heart of God above

Verse 5
What great gift can I inherit?
It is faith’s bonded solid base
It is the strength of heart and spirit
The covenant of hope and grace

Verse 6
Your body crucified O Savior
Your blood which once for me was shed
These are my life and strength forever
By them my hungry soul is fed
