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.
