A Fresh Jawbone — A Thought for This Lord’s Day

“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).

 

Thine is the love, Lord, that draws us together,

Guiding our steps from the wilderness ways;

Soon face to face we’ll adore Thee for ever,

Now our glad hearts would be filled with Thy praise.

 

While for this moment, O Lord, we have waited,

Oft has the Comforter spoken of Thee;

Now with love’s treasure our spirits are freighted,

Bowed at Thy feet, and the fragrance set free.

 

For us, Lord Jesus, Thyself Thou hast given;

Suff’rings unfathomed for us hast Thou known;

Now, in accord with the homage of heaven,

Rises a song from the hearts of Thine own.

 

Jesus, Lord Jesus, we love and adore Thee;

Glorious Thy Name, all our praises above;

Peerless Thy beauty, we wait now before Thee,

Moved are our hears in response to Thy love.
