Hymn H83

According to Thy gracious word,
Before Thine agony,
This will we do; our absent Lord,
We will remember Thee.

Thy body broken for our sake,
In bread now broke we see;
The cup of symbol too we take,
And this remember Thee.

Gethsemane, can we forget?
Or there Thy conflict see,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,
And not remember Thee?

Nay, nor Golgotha's awful scene
Can from our eyes hid be;
The lonely cry, the anguish keen;
Yes! we remember Thee.

Thine absence now we daily mourn;
We long Thy face to see;
No joy for us till Thy return;
We do remember Thee.

Come, Lord, Thy waiting servants say;
Come quickly, set us free;
Meanwhile, in service day by day
We will remember Thee.
