For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup,
ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

’TWAS ON THAT NIGHT
’Twas on that night, when doomed to know-
The eager rage of every foe,
That night in which He was betrayed,
The Saviour of the world took bread;
And, after thanks and glory given-
To Him that rules in earth and heaven,
That symbol of His flesh He broke,
And thus to all his followers spoke:
“My broken body thus I give-
For you, for all; take, eat, and live:
And oft the sacred rite renew-
That brings My wonderous love to view.”
Then in His hands the cup He raised,
And God anew He thanked and praised,
While kindness in His bosom glowed,
And from His lips salvation flowed.
“My blood I thus pour forth,” He cries,
“To cleanse the soul in sin that lies;”
In this the covenant is sealed,
And Heaven’s eternal grace revealed.
“With love to man this cup is fraught,
Let all partake the sacred draught;
Through latest ages let it pour-
In memory of My dying hour.”
A Blessèd Passover to all believers.
In the Son’s Name - For the Father’s glory.
