156. That Night, at Table

1 That night, at table with his friends,
our Lord took bread, and blest, and broke:
what love through all his actions ran!
What wondrous words of love he spoke!

2 "This is my body, given for you;
receive, and eat the living food."
He took the cup and blest the wine:
"This the new covenant in my blood."

3 "Do this," he said, "till time shall end,
in memory of your dying friend;
meet at my table, and record
the presence of your loving Lord."

4 Jesus, your feast we celebrate:
we show your death, we sing your name
till you return, that we may eat
the marriage supper of the Lamb.
