He “gave himself for me.” Gal. 2. 20; Luke 22. 19

J. Hart          C.M.

1
That doleful night before his death,
 The Lamb, for sinners slain,
 Did almost with his latest breath
 This solemn feast ordain.

2
To keep thy feast, Lord, are we met,
 And to remember thee;
 Help each poor trembler to repeat,
 “For me he died, for me.”

3
Thy sufferings, Lord, each sacred sign
 To our remembrance brings;
 We eat the bread and drink the wine,
 But think on nobler things.

4
O tune our tongues, and set in frame
 Each heart that pants to thee,
 To sing, “Hosanna to the Lamb,
 The Lamb that died for me!”
