Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


They eat, they drink, and in communion sweet
Quaff immortality and joy.

Thus may we abide in union,
With each other and the Lord,
And possess in sweet communion
Joys which earth cannot afford.
Rev. John Newton.—Benediction, Verse 2.
