Obedient to thy sacred word

Representative Text

1 Obedient to Thy sacred word,
"This do, remembering Me,"
Once more, dear Master, at Thy board
We meet for love of Thee.

2 With us, as with the twelve of old,
Sit down, O Friend divine,
To bless and break the paschal bread,
And pour with thanks the wine.

3 Behind this rite which Love supplies,
Our grateful souls discern
The body of the sacrifice
And pledge of Thy return.

4 By faith partaking of the flesh
And the atoning blood,
O let us feel the life afresh,
Of our redeeming Lord.
