KRI 130 According to Thy Gracious Word
James Mongomery
H. W. Greatorex' Collection
1=F 3/4
Versi Version 1
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 heav'n shall be;
Thy testamental cup I take,
and thus remember Thee.
Gethsemane can I forget?
Or there Thy conflict see,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,
and not remember Thee?
When to the cross I turn mine eyes,
and rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,
I must 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 mem'ry flee,
when Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
Jesus, remember me!
