This do in Remembrance of me.
1 EAT, drink, in memory of your Friend:
2 Yes, we'll record thy matchless love,
Thou kindest, tenderest, best of friends: Thy dying ove the noblest praise
Our hearts can offer thee transcends.
3 'Tis pleasure more than earth can give
HYMN 473. S. M. [#]
1 LET party names no more
The Christian world o'erspread;
2 Among the saints on earth
3 Envy and strife be gone,
And only kindness known;
4 Thus will the church below
Where springs of purest pleasure rise,
HYMN 474. C. M. [b]
1 DIDST thcu, dear Jesus, suffer shame,
2 Inspire my soul with life divine, And make me truly bold;
Let knowledge, faith and meekness shine,
3 Let mockers scoff, the world defame
4 To thee I cheerfully submit,
HYMN 475. L. M. [#]
The Memorial of our absent Lord.
1 JESUS is gone above the sky,
Where our weak senses reach him not; And carnal objects court our eye,
To thrust our Saviour from our thought.
2 He knows what wandering hearts we have,
3 The Lord of life this table spread
And taste the wine, and bless our God.
4 Let sinful sweets be all forgot,
And earth grow less in our esteem; Christ and his love fill every thought,
And faith and hope be fixed on him.
HYMN 476. 61. L. M. [#]
The Christian's ardent Aspirations.
1 ETERNAL Spirit, Source of light,
Our dull, our frozen hearts inspire;
Nor let us wander in the dark,
3 Let pure devotion's fervours rise ;
Kindle in our cold hearts below.
HYMN 477. 8 & 7s. M. [b]
Desires after Christian Obedience.
1 FROM the table now retiring,
Which for us the Lord hath spread, May our souls, refreshment finding,
Grow in all things like our Head.
2 His example by beholding,
May our lives his image bear; Him our Lord and Master calling, His commands may we revere. 3 Love to God and man displaying, Walking steadfast in his way, Joy attend us in believing;
Peace from God, through endless day.
DEDICATIONS AND ORDINATIONS.

1 How does my heart rejoice
2 Zion, thrice happy place!
3 May peace attend thy gate,
And joy within thee wait,
4 My tongue repeats her vows,
For here my friends and brethren dwell;
