In memory of our dying Lord

Representative Text

1 In mem'ry of our dying Lord,
We take the sacred bread ad wine;
And thankfully his grace record,
How bright his love and mercy shine!

2 In lively figures here we see
The crucif'd Redeemer's face,
Expiring on the cursed tree,
To ransom our apostate race.

3 Sinners to save from endless woes,
The wrath divine he sinks beneath;
The law's dread curse he undergoes
At once disarming sin, and death.

4 Here Jesus all his grace displays,
And makes his brightest glories known;
To him each saint glad homage pays,
And triumphs in his cross alone.
