320. According to thy gracious word

C.M.

St. Magnus (Clark):

Jeremiah Clark, c. 1709

James Montgomery, 1825

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;

The cup, thy precious Blood, I take,

And thus remember thee.

Gethsemane, can I 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.

And when these failing lips grow dumb,

And mind and memory flee,

When thou shalt in thy kingdom come,

Then, Lord, remember me.

Amen.
