Come all who truly bear the name of Christ your Lord

Representative Text

1 Come, all who truly bear
The name of Christ your Lord,
His last mysterious supper share,
And keep His kindest word.

2 Hereby your faith approve

"In memory of My dying love,
Do this," He said, and died.

3 Then let us still profess
Our Master's honoured name;
Stand forth His faithful witnesses,
True followers of the Lamb.

4 In proof that such we are,
His saying we receive,
And thus to all mankind declare
We do in Christ believe.

5 Who thus our faith employ,
His sufferings to record,
Even now we mournfully enjoy
Communion with our Lord.

6 We too with Him are dead,
And shall with Him arise;
The cross on which He bows His head
Shall lift us to the skies.
