2 0, shall not warmer accents tell
To Him, who died, our fears to quell,
3 While yet his anguished soul surveyed Those pangs he would not flee, What love his latest words displayed!"Meet and remember me."
4 Remember thee! thy death, thy shame,
Coming to the Lord's Supper.

2 He knew how frail our nature is,
3 These faithful pledges of his love
To bring refreshment to our souls,

3 See him, on the dreadful day Of his mortal agony, Break the bread, and hear him say, "Eat of this, and think of me!" 4 See him standing on the brink
