Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

The Remembrance of Christ in the Supper

Christ, in that night he was betrayed Took bread, gave thanks, it break and said

Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Christ in that night he was betry'd,
Took bread, gave thanks, it break and said,
My broken body here you see,
Take, eat it, and remember me.

2 Thus also, he the cub did take;
Here's sealing blood shed for your sake,
Which doth my test'ment ratify;
Let all drink and remember me.

3 Your pardon, with what's for your good,
Is purchas'd with my dearest blood:
My blood to you makes pardon free;
In drinking then remember me.

4 For hungry souls here's manna rare,
God sends from heaven for your fare;
This manna falls now plenteously;
In eating then remember me.

5 Here God sits on a throne of grace;
where sinful man may see his face;
My blood procures your access free,
In drinking then remember me.

6 See here the tree of life with fruit,
And leaves which heal, and strength recruit
These I shake down poor soul to thee;
Eat freely and remember me.

7 See Jacob's ladder here set up,
A covenanting God at top;
Climb and God will transact with thee,
In doing this remember me.

8 Hence runs of life the river pure,
Which our souls' wounds doth cleanse and cure,
It freely runs to all you see:
Drink by faith, and remember me.
