Description

Wonderful setting of a communion text by Isaac Watts. 2-part with organ.

Come, dearest Lord, descend and dwell
By faith and love in ev’ry breast;
Then shall we know, and taste, and feel
The joys that cannot be expressed.

Come, fill our hearts with inward strength,
Make our enlarged souls posess,
And learn the height, and breadth, and length
Of thine unmeasurable grace.

Now to the God whose pow’r can do
More than our thoughts or wishes know,
Be everlasting honors done
By all the church, through Christ his Son.
