1 The blest memorials of thy grief,
The suff'rings of thy death,
We come, dear Saviour, to receive;
But would receive with faith.

But would receive with hope.

3 The pledges thou wast pleas'd to leave,
Our mournful minds to move,
We come, dear Saviour to receive;
But would receive with love.

4 Here in obedience to thy word
We take the bread and wine;
The utmost we can do, dear Lord,
for all beyond is thine.

5 Increase our faith, and hope, and love;
Lord, give us all that's good;
We would thy full salvation prove,
And share thy flesh and blood.
