422. 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 heaven shall be;
thy testamental cup I take,
and thus remember thee.

3 When to the cross I turn my 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 numb,
and mind and memory flee,
when thou shalt in thy kingdom come,
Jesus, remember me.
