On the altar

David built an altar there to the Lord (2 Samuel 24:25; NLT).

 1. Here, within this candle-flame,
Is God,
Who comes from heaven to reign.

2. Here, within this sacred bread,
His Son,
The first fruits of the dead.

3. Here, within this cup of wine,
His Spirit,
Who is truth divine.

4. Here, within this mystery,
Is God,
In perfect unity.
