In love still faithful to the end

Representative Text

1 In love still faithful to the end,
The Lord approved Himself our Friend,
And granted in His last bequest,
That which through faith gives peace and rest.

2 The night in which He was betrayed,
He blessed the bread and cup, and said,
Eat, drink, and named the given good:
'This is My Body and My Blood.'

3 Israel's Paschal-feast had long
Kept waiting hope in Israel strong,
The Lamb of God now gave, instead,
Himself as heavenly drink and bread.

4 Keep ye this feast confessing Me,
Whose death alone could make you free,
Your souls and bodies, dearly bought,
Yield not to sin: forget Me not!

5 O may we ne'er unworthy prove
Of Jesus' all-enduring love!
Nor doubt the Master's work and Word,
And thus reject Him as the Lord.

6 His body, once as ransom given,
Is proffered her as pledge of heaven;
His blood, shed for us on the tree,
Here cleanses from iniquity.

7 Lord help our faith to grasp the Word,
That we in grace may near Thy board;
And here discern what Thou dost give,
Partake of life and ever live!
