According to Thy Gracious Word

According to Thy Gracious Word-uccpako-communion cup

According to Thy gracious word,
In meek humility,
This will I do, my dying Lord:
I will remember Thee.

Thy body, broken for my sake
My bread from heav’n shall be;
Thy testamental cup I take,
And thus remember Thee.

Gethsemane can I forget?
Or there Thy conflict see,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,
And not remember Thee?

When to the cross I turn mine eyes
And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,
I must remember Thee.

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

And when these failing lips grow dumb
And mind and mem-‘ry flee,
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
Jesus, remember me!
