St. Peter (Reinagle) Alexander R. Reinagle, Psalm Tunes for the Voice and Pianoforte (Oxford, England: 1836) (🔊 pdf nwc).

In memory of the Savior’s love
We keep the sacred feast,
When every humble, contrite heart
Is made a welcome guest.

Symbolic of His broken flesh,
We take the broken bread,
The cup in token of His blood
That was for sinners shed.

Under His banner now we sing
The wonders of His love
And so anticipate by faith
The heav’nly feast above.
