This popular hymn by O'Connor-Morris is given a soothing contemporary accompaniment by Newman. It's easy for the soloist because it's familiar, moderate difficulty for the accompanist. In verse 4, the melody is a delightful descant, but you could replace the notes with the original hymn melody. Music: G. O'Connor-Morris, arranged by Philip E. Newman.

Lyrics

Communion Hymn
Music: G. O’Connor-Morris, arranged by Philip E. Newman.
Words Mary Baker Eddy. Poems, p. 75

Saw ye my Saviour? Heard ye the glad sound?
Felt ye the power of the Word?
‘Twas the Truth that made us free,
And was found by you and me
In the life and the love of our Lord.

Mourner, it calls you, “Come to my bosom,
Love wipes your tears all away,
And will lift the shade of gloom,
And for you make radiant room
Midst the glories of one endless day.”

Sinner, it calls you, “Come to this fountain,
Cleanse the foul senses within;
‘Tis the Spirit that makes pure,
That exalts thee, and will cure
All thy sorrow and sickness and sin.”

Strongest deliverer, friend of the friendless,
Life of all being divine:
Thou the Christ, and not the creed;
Thou the Truth in thought and deed;
Thou the water, the bread, and the wine.
