Lyrics

According to Thy gracious word, In deep humility
This will I do, my loving Lord, I will remember Thee.
Thy body broken for my sake, My bread from heaven shall be;
The cup, Thy precious blood I take, And thus remember Thee.

When to the cross I turn mine eyes,
 And rest on Calvary,

O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,
 I must remember Thee;
And when these failing lips grow dumb
, And mind and memory flee,

When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
 Jesus, remember me.
