Hymns#E0227 [Through the Bread and Cup, Lord Jesus]

_1_

Through the bread and cup, Lord Jesus,

We Thy death exhibit here;

What Thy love has done reviewing,

All Thy suff'ring we revere.

Bread and cup in separation,

Show that Thou thru death hast gone;

Grateful now, our spirit worships,

And to Thee we give our song.

Thine the cup of suff'ring,

Mine the cup of blessing;

For Thy love in Thy redemption,

Praise we ever sing!


_2_

Thou, in love, hast shed Thy blood, Lord,

Bringing us to God in grace,

That from God, no longer severed,

We may ever see His face.

All God's righteousness and glory

Have been fully satisfied;

Thru Thy death's abundant merit

We may now with God abide.

Thine the cup of suff'ring,

Mine the cup of blessing;

For Thy love in Thy redemption,

Praise we ever sing!


_3_

By Thy death the veil was riven,

Opened was the holiest place,

All the barriers have been broken;

We approach the throne of grace,

There receiving grace and mercy,

Thus the timely need to meet,

Drinking as of living water,

Tasting God Himself replete.

Thine the cup of suff'ring,

Mine the cup of blessing;

For Thy love in Thy redemption,

Praise we ever sing!


_4_

Thou in grace hast so redeemed us,

We the priests may be fore'er

To fulfill that holy office,

All God's sweetness thus to share.

Such a blessing, such a mercy,

From Thy death for us ensue;

We would ever Thee remember

Till with Thee we drink anew.

Thine the cup of suff'ring,

Mine the cup of blessing;

For Thy love in Thy redemption,

Praise we ever sing!
