321. According to Thy Gracious Word

1 According to Thy gracious word,
In meek humility,
This will I do, my dying Lord;
I will remember Thee.

2 Thy body, broken for my sake,
My bread from heav'n shall be;
Thy testamental cup I take,
And thus remember Thee.

3 When to the cross I turn mine eyes
And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,
I must remember Thee.

4 Remember Thee and all Thy pains
And all Thy love to me;
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,
Will I remember Thee.

5 And when these failing lips grow dumb
And mind and mem'ry flee,
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
Jesus, remember me!
