Hymn 3:19 (at Thy Command, Our Dearest Lord)

Glory in the cross; or, Not ashamed
of Christ crucified.


At thy command, our dearest Lord,
Here we attend thy dying feast;
Thy blood like wine adorns thy board,
And thine own flesh feeds every guest.

Our faith adores thy bleeding love,
And trusts for life in one that dy'd;
We hope for heavenly crowns above
From a Redeemer crucify'd.

Let the vain world pronounce it shame,
And fling their scandals on thy cause;
We come to boast our Saviour's Name,
And make our triumphs in his cross.

With joy we tell the scoffing age
He that was dead has left his tomb,
He lives above their utmost rage,
And we are waiting till he come.

Hymn 3:18 (jesus, We Bow Before Thy Feet)
The same.Jesus, we bow before thy feet,Thy table is divinely stor'd:Thy sacred flesh our souls have eat,'Tis living bread; we thank thee, Lord!And here we drink our Saviour's blood,We thank thee, Lord, 'tis generous wine;Mingled with love the fountain flow'dFrom that dear bleeding heart of thine.On earth is no such sweetness found,For the Lamb's flesh is heavenly food;In vain we search the globe aroundFor bread so fine, or wine so good.Carnal provisions can at bestBut cheer the heart, or warm the head,But the rich cordial that we tasteGives life eternal to the dead.Joy to the Master of the feast,His name our
