M.
The supper of the Lamb.
THEE, King of saints, we praise

For this our living bread;
Nourish'd by thy preserving grace,

And at thy table fed.
2 Yet still a higher seat

We in thy kingdom claim,
Who here begin by faith to eat

The supper of the Lamb.
3 That glorious, heavenly prize,

We surely shall attain,
And, in the palace of the skies,

With thee forever reign. 275

S. M.
Obeying the command.
TESUS, we thus obey

Thy last and kindest word;
Here, in thine own appointed way,

We come to meet our Lord.
2 The way thou hast enjoin'd,

Thou wilt therein appear;
We come with confidence to find

Thy special presence here.
3 Whate'er the Almighty can

To pardon'd sinners give,
The fulness of our God made man,

We here with Christ receive. 276

1st P. M. 6 lines 88. The efficacy of the atoning blood. VICTIM divine! thy grace we claim

While thus thy precious death we show; Once offer'd up a spotless Lamb,

In thy great temple here below, Thou didst for all mankind atone, And standest now before the throne.

2 Thou standest in the holicst place,

As now for guilty sinners slain;
The blood of sprinkling speaks, and prays,

All-prevalent for helpless man;
Thy blood is still our ransom found,
And speaks salvation all around.
3 We need not now go up to heaven
To bring the long-sought Saviour down;
Thou art to all already given,

Thou dost e'en now thy banquet crown ;-
To every faithful soul appear,
And show thy real presence here.
277

S. M.
A foretaste of glory.
O WHAT delight is this

Which now in Christ we know,
An earnest of our glorious bliss,

Our heaven begun below!
2 When He the table spreads,
How royal is the cheer;
With rapture we lift up our heads,

And own that God is here.
3 The Lamb for sinners slain,

Who died to die no more,
Let all the ransom'd sons of men,

With all bis hosts, adore.
4 Let earth and heaven be join'd,

His glories to display,
And hymn the Saviour of mankind

In one eternal day.
278

Rejoicing at the table, with godly sorrow.
TO Jesus, our exalted Lord,

The Name by heaven and earth adored,
Fain would our hearts and voices raise
A cheerful song of sacred praise.

2 But all the notes which mortals know,
Are weak, and languishing, and low;
Far, far above our humble songs,
The theme demands immortal tongues.
3 Yet while around his board we meet,
And humbly worship at his feet,
O let our warm affections move,
In glad returus of grateful love!
4 Let humble, penitential wo,
In tears of godly sorrow flow;
And thy forgiving smiles impart
Life, hope, and joy to every heart.
279

All his suffrings for mankind : True recorder of his passion,

Now the living faith impart; Now reveal his grent salvation

Uuto every faithful heart. 2 Come, thou Witness of his dying;

Come, Réinembrancer divine; Let us feel thy power applying

Christ to every soul, and inine : Let us groan thine inward groaning;

Look on Hin we pierced, and griove; All partake the grace atoning,

All the sprinkled blood receive. 280

2 His precious blood was shed,

His body bruised, for sin :
Remember this in eating bread,

And this in drinking wine.
3 Approach his royal board,

In his rich garments clad;
Join every tongue to praise the Lord,

And every heart be glad.
4 The Father gives the Son;
The Son, his flesh and blood :
The Spirit seals; and faith puts on

The righteousness of God.
281 9th P. M. 87, 87, 87, 87.

The heavenly banquet.
TESUS spreads his banner o'er us,

Cheers our famish'd souls with food;
He the banquet spreads before us,

Of his mystic flesh and blood.
Precious bangnet; bread of heaven;

Wine of gladness, flowing free;
May we taste it, kindly given,

In remembrance, Lord, of thee.
2 In thy holy incarnation,

When the angels sang thy birth;
In thy fasting and temptation;

In thy labours on the earth;
In thy trial and rejection ;

In thy suffrings on the tree;
In thy glorious resurrection;

May we, Lord, remember thee.
282

5th P. M. 4 lines 79.
Pardon-grace-glory.
NONS of God, triumphant rise;

Shout the accomplish'd sacrifice;
Shout your sins in Christ forgiven,-
Sons of God, and heirs

of heaven.
