Full Text

1 In remembrance of the Saviour,
And the load he bore for me;
I commemorate his passion,
And his death upon the tree.

2 At the altar lowly kneeling,
Yielding all my soul to God,
I adore my dear Redeemer,
Who alone the wine-press trod.

3 Here I take the sacred emblems
That his broken body gives,
And my heart exults in gladness,
Since for me the Saviour lives.

4 I'm a witness of his dying,
And his rising from the grave--
Of his love for outcast sinners,
And his mighty power to save.

5 Here my faith with brightened vision
Sees the land that's far away,
Where I'll sup again with Jesus,
In the realms of endless day.
