“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.
