In memory of the Savior's love

Full Text

1 In memory of the Savior's love,
we keep the sacred feast,
where every humble, contrite heart
is made a welcome guest.

2 By faith we take the bread of life
by which our souls are fed,
the cup in token of his blood
that was for sinners shed.

3 In faith and memory here we sing
the wonders of his love,
and thus anticipate by faith
the heavenly feast above.

Author: Thomas Cotterill

Thomas Cotterill was born in 1779; studied at S. John's College, Cambridge, graduating M.A.; ordained in 1806, and enterred upon parochial work at Tutbury; afterwards removed to Lane End, where he remained for nine years among the Potteries; in 1817, became perpetual Curate of S. Paul's, Sheffield. He died in 1823. He was the author of several books; among them, "A Selection of Psalms and Hymns for Public and Private Use, adapted to the Services of the Church of England." In the preparation of this collection (the 8th ed., 1819), he had the assistance of Montgomery, who in this work did what he condemned in others, viz., altering and remodeling other authors' hymns. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A., 1872.… Go to person page >
