A Fresh Jawbone — A Word for the Lord’s Day

Webmaster’s Note: Once again, the Lord’s Day has come and our minds turn once more to calling the Lord Jesus to mind in the Supper.  The Lord Jesus is absent from us but our hearts rejoice when the Lord takes His place among us.  Our hearts pour forth in praise and worship to Him!

 


“For I received from the Lord, that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus, in the night in which he was delivered up, took bread, and having given thanks broke [it], and said, This is my body, which [is] for you: this do in remembrance of me. In like manner also the cup, after having supped, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as often as ye shall drink [it], in remembrance of me. For as often as ye shall eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye announce the death of the Lord, until he come.”  (1 Cor. 11: 23 – 26).

 


 

Thy love, blest Lord, in death made known,

Has touched our hearts anew;

Responsive love delights to own

All praise to Thee is due.

 

The bread reminds us we are one,

One body there is seen;

The Spirit’s unity we own

Where diverse we had been.

 

“My body – giv’n,” Thou saidst, O Lord,

“My blood – poured out for you”:

What joy Thy precious words afford

As we these emblems view!

 

While thus we call Thee, Lord, to mind,

Thou dost Thyself now come,

In Thine assembly here to find –

Where Thou hadst none – a home!
