Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

Full Text

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.
