Around the Altar

This hymn about the Eucharist was written by Nigerian Roman Catholic priest Iheanyi M. Enwerem, OP.

It is included in the Nigerian Catholic Hymn Book, and in "Let us Celebrate" - a local publication by the Dominicans in Lagos (ref - number 394). But it does not appear to have been published in any worldwide hymn-books.

No on-line examples have been found.

Lyrics

Chorus:
Around the altar we sing and pray with one heart.
Around the altar come.
Around the altar we celebrate our oneness,
Our joy is full in Christ.

1. Take his body, singing, praying all together,
Take the Body of Christ,
Take his body, singing, praying, all together.
Take and eat with joy.

2. Take his blood, singing, praying, all together,
Take the blood of Christ,
Take his blood, singing, praying, all together,
Take and drink with joy.

3. Take your brothers, singing, praying all together,
Take your brothers to Christ.
Take your brothers, singing, praying, all together,
Take them to the Lord.

4. Take your sisters, singing, praying all together,
Take your sisters to Christ.
Take your sisters, singing, praying, all together,
Take them to the Lord.
