Representative Text

1 Jesu, dear, redeeming Lord,
Magnify thy dying word,
In thine ordinance appear,

Taste thee in the broken bread.

3 Thou our faithful hearts prepare,
Thou thy pard'ning grace declare,

Shew thyself the crucified!

4 All the power of sin remove,
Fill us with thy perfect love,
Stamp us with the stamp divine
Seal our souls for ever thine.
