Hymn 37. C. M.
✓ NHAT doleful night before his death

The LAMB for sinners slain
Did, almost with his dying breath,

This solemn feast ordain.
2 To keep the feast, LORD, we have met,

And to remember thee :
Help each poor trembler to repeat,

“For me—he died for me !"
3 These sacred signs, thy sufferings, LORD,

To our remembrance brings ;
We eat and drink around thy board,

But think on nobler things.
4 O tune our tongues, and set in frame

Each heart that pants for thee,
To sing “ Hosanna to the LAMB,”

The LAMB that died for me !

Hymn 38. L. M.
I NWAS on that dark, that solemn night,

I When powers of hell arose,
1 Against the the Son of God's delight,

And friends betray'd him to his foes. 2 Before the mournful scene began,

He took the bread, and blest, and brake What love through all his actions ran !

What wondrous words of grace he spake! i 3 This is my body, broke for sin; .

Receive and eat this living food: ::

Then took the cup, and blest the wine,

'Tis the new covenant in my blood. 4 Do this, he cried, till time shall end ;

Meet at my table, and record
The memory of your dying Friend ;

The love of your departed LORD. 5 JESUS! thy feast we celebrate,

We share thy death, we sing thy name, Till thou return, and we shall eat

The marriage-supper of the LAMB.

Hymn 39. 4 6's & 2 8's.

RISE, my soul, arise,
A Shake off thy guilty fears;
The bleeding sacrifice

In my behalf appears :
Before the throne my Surety stands

My name is written on his hands. 2 He ever lives above,

For me to intercede,
His all-redeeming love,

His precious blood to plead ;
His blood atoned for all our race,

And sprinkles now the throne of grace. 3 Five bleeding wounds he bears,

Received on Calvary;
They pour effectual prayers,

They strongly speak for me:
Forgive him, 0, forgive! they cry,
Nor let that ransom'd sinner die!
