Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 The time of Jesus being at hand
To leave this world below;
Gave his Disciples this command:
This shall ye mind and do.
2 This blessed bread which I do break,
This cup, this blessed wine:
This bread and wine ye shall partake,
An ordinance divine.
3 This ordinance I do ordain,
To prove my sacred will;
This Institution shall contain
My pledges and my seal.
4 Take ye this bread and eat by faith,
And drink this cup likewise;
And by so doing shew my death,
And precious sacrifice.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LXVI
