Communion Hymn

Brett Allen  •  Digital Sheet Music (DSM)


A rousing rendition of Mary Baker’s Eddy’s poem of hope and salvation, “Mourner, it calls you, –‘Come to my bosom, Love wipes your tears all away.” This setting incorporates a fragment of the tune “Faith” by G. O’Conner-Morris (#301 in the CS Hymnal), uniting the old with the new in a fascinating way.

Communion Hymn

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.
