4 May the dear Blood, once shed for me,
My blest Atonement prove,
That I from first to last may be
The purchase of Thy Love 1

5 Let every thought, and work, and word,
To Thee be ever given :
Then life shall be Thy service, Lord,
And death the gate of heaven
Matthew Brydges. 1848.

324 II. M. 1 BAPTIZED into Thy Name, Mysterious One in Three, Our souls and bodies claim, A sacrifice to Thee; And let us live our faith to prove, The faith which works by humble love.

2 0 that our light may shine,
And all our lives express
The character divine,
The real holiness;
And then receive us up, to adore
The Triune God for evermore.
- C. Wesley. 1767.

THE LORD's SUPPER. 3.25 - C. M. 1. According to Thy gracious word, In meek humility, This will I do, my dying Lord, I will remember Thee. 2 Thy Body, broken for my sake, My Bread from heaven shall be; Thy testamental cup I take, 23 And thus remember Thee. 8

3 Gethsemane can I forget,
Or there Thy conflict see,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,
And not remember Thee?
4. When to the Cross I turn mine eyes,
And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my Sacrifice
I must remember Thee.

5 Remember Thee, and all Thy pains,
And all Thy Love to me;
Yes, while a breath, a pulse remains,
Will I remember Thee.

6 And when these failing lips grow dumb,
And mind and memory flee,
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
Jesus, remember me.
James Montgomery. 1825.

326 S. M. 1 JESUs invites His saints To meet around His board: Here those He died to save may hold Communion with their Lord.

2 Our heavenly Father calls
Christ and His members one :
We are the children of His Love,
And He the first-born Son.

3 We are but several parts
Of the same broken bread;
One body with its several limbs,
But Jesus is the Head.
4 Let all our powers be joined,
His glorious Name to raise:
Pleasure and love fill every mind,
And every voice be praise!
Watts. 1709. a.

327 L. M. 1 My God, and is Thy table spread? And does Thy cup with love o'erflow 7 Thither be all Thy children led, And let them all its sweetness know.

2 Hail, sacred Feast, which Jesus makes,
Rich Banquet of His Flesh and Blood!
Thrice happy he, who here partakes
That sacred stream, that heavenly food |

3 Why are its blessings all in vain
Before unwilling hearts displayed 2
Was not for us the victim slain Ż
Are we forbid the children’s Bread 2

4 0 let Thy table honored be,
And furnished well with joyful guests;
And may each soul salvation see,
That here its sacred pledges tastes.

5 Let crowds approach, with hearts prepared;
With warm desire let all attend;
Nor, when we leave our Father's board,
The pleasure or the profit end.
Doddridge. 1755. a.

1 O GoD unseen, yet ever near,
Thy presence may we feel;
And thus, inspired with holy fear,
Before Thine altar kneel.

2 Here may Thy faithful people know
The blessings of Thy Love;
The streams that through the desert flow,
The manna from above.
3 We come, obedient to Thy Word,
To feast on heavenly food;
Our meat the Body of the Lord,
Our drink, His precious Blood.

3.32 Ecce Panis Angelorum. 7's.

1 Lo, upon the altar lies
Bread of heaven from the skies:
Food to mortal wanderers given,
To the sons and heirs of heaven.

[ocr errors]

2 Thy Body for our ransom given,
Thy Blood in mercy shed,—
With this immortal food from heaven,
Lord, let our souls be fed:
And as we round Thine altar kneel,
Help us Thy quickening grace to feel.
3 Be Thou, O Holy Spirit, nigh;
Accept the humble prayer,
The contrite soul's repentant sigh,
The sinner's heartfelt tear;
And let our adoration rise
As fragrant incense to the skies.
Unknown. 1852. a.
3 Come, glorious Lord! my hopes increase,
And mix my portion with Thy peace!
Come, and forever dwell in me,
That I may only live to Thee.

4 Come, hidden life, and that long day
For which I languish, come away!
When this dry soul Thy face shall see,
And drink the unsealed Source of Thee:
