Lyrics

Obedient to Thy sacred word,
This do, remembering Me,
Once more, dear Master, at Thy board
We meet for love of Thee.

With us, as with the twelve of old,
Sit down, O Friend divine,
To bless and break the paschal bread,
And pour with thanks the wine.

Behind this rite which Love supplies,
Our grateful souls discern
The body of the sacrifice
And pledge of Thy return.

By faith partaking of the flesh
And the atoning blood,
O let us feel the life afresh,
Of our redeeming Lord.
