ACCORDING to Thy gracious Word,

In meek humility,

This will I do, my dying Lord,

I will remember Thee.


Thy body, broken for my sake,

My bread from heaven shall be;

Thy cup of blessing I will take,

And thus remember Thee.


Can I Gethsemane forget?

Or there Thy conflict see,

Thine agony and bloody sweat,

And not remember Thee?


When to the cross I turn mine eyes,

And rest on Calvary,

O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,

I must remember Thee.


Remember Thee, and all Thy pains,

And all Thy love to me;

Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,

Will I remember Thee.


And when these failing lips grow dumb,

And mind and memory flee,

When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,

Jesus, remember me.
