Remember Me

Full Text

Remember me—the God who saves—
For back in Egypt you were slaves;
Then by my hand I set you free.
Now keep my law. Remember me.

Remember me in bread and wine
Whene’er you share this meal of mine.
I gave my life to set you free.
With thanks and praise, remember me.

Remember me in all you do,
For I’m alive! I walk with you.
I was, I am, and I shall be.
O church I love, remember me.

Our God, we hear! We’re called and freed!
Your Spirit gives us memory.
Now send us out that we may share
Your love’s great story everywhere.
