According to Thy Gracious Word

According to Thy Gracious Word

James Montgomery

According to Thy gracious word,

In meek humility,

This will I do, my dying Lord,

I will remember Thee.


Thy body, broken for my sake,

My bread from heaven shall be;

Thy testamental cup I take,

And thus remember Thee.


Remember Thee, and all Thy pains,

And all Thy love to me.

Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,

Will I remember Thee.


And when these failing lips grow dumb,

And mind and memory flee,

When Thou shall in Thy kingdom come

Jesus, remember me.
