Blessed Communion

by Burton H. Winslow


Near, near to my Saviour,
Close to his bleeding side;
Drinking deep of his Spirit,
Ever would I abide.
There no trouble can harm me,
Sheltered from ev'ry snare;
Sweetly resting in Jesus,
O it is good to be there!

Sweet, sweet is my portion,
Sitting at Jesus' feet,
Learning lessons most blessed,
Here at the mercy seat.
In his sacred pavilion
He doth a feast prepare—
Sacred, loving communion,
O it is good to be there!

Free, free is the fountain,
Flowing for all who will;
Come and feast on his bounty,
He will receive thee still.
Bring thy burden and leave it,
Cast on the Lord thy care;
There's a joy in his presence,
O it is good to be there!

Chorus

O it is good to be there!
O it is good to be there!
In this blessed communion,
O it is good to be there!
