HYMN SPOTLIGHT

Here, at Your Table, Lord (1905)

May Pierpoint Hoyt, late 19th Century?

Nothing is known about this writer of this classic Lord’s Supper text except what can be gleaned from this one hymn. It has been popular in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination since its first publication in a Disciples’ hymnbook in 1905. Because of that, it has been assumed that she was a member of that fellowship, but the truth is that no one really knows for sure.
