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
