The Lord's Supper

Representative Text

1 When we meet in sweet communion
Where the feast divine is spread;
Hearts are brought in closer union
While partaking of the bread.

Precious feast all else surpassing,
Wondrous love for you and me,
While we feast Christ gently whispers:
"Do this in my memory."

2 "God so loved"--what wondrous measure!
Loved and gave the best of heav'n;
Bought us with that matchless treasure,
Yea, for us His life was giv'n. [Refrain]

3 Feast divine all else surpassing,
Precious blood for you and me,
While we sup, Christ gently whispers;
"Do this in my memory." [Refrain]
