This is my blood of the New Testament, which is

is shed for many for the remission of sins.--Már. xxvi. 28 THIS is the feast of heav'nly wine,

And God invites to sup; b: 30$

Were press’d, to fill the cup i
2 Oh bless the SAVIOUR, ye that eat,

With royal dainties fed ; iite
Not heav'n affords a costlier treat,

For Jesus is the bread!
3 The vile, the lost, he calls to them,

Ye trembling souls, appear! We
The righteous in their own esteem,

Have no acceptance here.
4 Approach, ye poor, nor dare refuse

The banquet spread for you;
This, gracious LORD, is welcome news,

And I may venture too.
5 If guilt and sin afford a plea,

And may obtain a place,
Surely the LORD will welcome me,

And I shall see his face.

471. Before the Lord's Supper. L.M.

He was known of them in breaking of bread. LUKE

xxiv. 35.

TO Jesus our exalted LORD,
That name by heav'n and earth ador’d,
Fain would our hearts and voices raise

A cheerful song of sacred praise. 2 But all the notes which mortals know

Are weak, and languishing, and low;
Far, far above our humble songs,

The theme demands immortal tongues. 3 Yet, round his table while we meet,

And humbly worship at his feet,
O may our warm affections move

In glad returns of grateful love! 4 Let faith our feeble senses aid,

Here may we see his love display'd;
The broken body, precious blood,

And sufferings of our SAVIOUR GOD, 5 To each the contrite heart bestow,

Give us thy pard'ning grace to know ;
And may thy peace, O Lord, impart,
Life, hope, and joy, to ev'ry heart,

472. Before the Lord's Supper. C.M. The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which

was lost.-LUKE xix. 10. LORD, at thy table 1 behold

The wonders of thy grace ;
But most of all admire that I

Should find a welcome place. 2 I that am all de fl'd with sin,

A rebel to my God;
I that have crucify'd bis Son,

And trampled on his blood. 3 What strange surprising grace is this,

That one so lost has room!
Jesus my weary soul invites,

And freely bids me come. 4 Ye saints below, and hosts of heav'n,

Join all your praising powers; !4
No theme is like redeeming love,i'?

No SAVIOUR is like ours. 5 [Had I ten thousand hearts, O LORD,

I'd give them all to thee:
Had I ten thousand tongues, they all

Should join the harmony.] 473. Before the Lord's Supper. 78. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

John xiv. 18.
COME, thou high and lofty LORD,
Lowly, meek, incarnate Word;

Humbly stoop to earth again ;

Come, and visit sinful men !
2 Jesus, we thy promise claim;

We are met in thy great name ;
lo the midst do thou appear,

Manifest thy presence here.
3 [Sanctify us, LORD, and bless;

Breathe thy Spirit, give thy peace;
Mutual love the token be,

Lord, that we belong to thee. 4 Plant in us thy humble mind;

Patient, pitiful, and kind;
Meek and gracious may we be,

Full of goodness, full of thee!] 5 Make us all in thee complete;

Make us all for glory meet;
Meet t' appear before thy sight,

Partners with thy saints in light. 6 Call, O call us each by name,

To the marriage of the Lamb;
Give our souls to taste thy bliss,
Clothe us in thy righteousness.

474. Before Receiving. 7s. When the disciples came together to break bread.

Acts xx. 7.
MEETING in the SAVIOUR's name,
Breaking bread by his command,
To the world we thus proclaim,
On what ground we hope to stand,

[ocr errors]

Wben the LORD shall come with clouds,

Join'd by heav'n's exulting crowds. 2 From the cross our hope we draw:

'Tis the sinner's blest resource:
Jesus magnified the Law :
Jesus bore its awful curse:
What a glorious truth is this !

O how full of joy and peace. 3 Jesus died, and then arose:

Yes, he rose, he lives, he reigns :
Jesus vanquish'd all his foes :
Jesus led them all in cbains :
His the triumph, bis the crown:

His the glory and renown.
4 Sing we then of him who died:

Sing of him who rose again :
By his blood we're justified,
And with him we hope to reign':
Soon we hope to see our LORD:
And to share his bright reward.

475. Before Receiving. 8—7—7. He hath filled the hungry with good things.-LUKE i. 53. BRETHREN come, 'tis Jesus bids us;

Bids us to a feast of love:
Bless the LORD, whose bounty feeds us

With provision from above:
Ye for whom his life was giv'n,
Come, and eat the bread of heav'n.
