ITS ORDINANCES-THE LORD'S
L.M. 720 The cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 W , CHEN
I survey the wondrous cross
Save in the death of Christ my God!
vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood. 3 See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingling down! Did e'er such love and sorrow meet.
Or thorns compose so rich a crown? 4 His dying crimson, like a robe,
Spreads o'er His body on the tree;
And all the globe is dead to me. 5 Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
sakes He became poor.- 2 Cor 8, 9. 1 (ESUS, whom. angel-hosts adore,
; In love, though rich, becoming poor, That I through Him enriched might be, 2 Though Lord of all above, below,
He went to Olivet for me;
When bleeding in Gethsemane. 3. The ever-blessed Son of God
Went up to Calvary for me; [load,
4 Jesus, whose dwelling is the skies,
Went down into the grave for me ;
There won the glorious victory. 5 Tis finished! all the veil is rent,
The welcome sure, the access free;
722 on the
iniquity of us all.-Isa. 53, 0. 1 IKE sheep we went astray
And broke the fold of God, Each wandering in a different way,
But all the downward road. 2 How dreadful was the hour
When God our wanderings laid,
did at once His vengeance pour,
Upon the Shepherd's head! 3 How glorious was the grace
When Christ sustained the stroke! His life and blood the Shepherd pays
A ransom for the flock. 4 But God shall raise His head
O'er all the sons of men, And make Him see a numerous seed,
To recompense His pain. 5 I'll give Him, saith the Lord,
A portion with the strong; He shall possess a large reward,
And hold His honours long.
LM. I will sing of mercy.-Ps.101, 1. 1 HEAR á sound that comes from far: II
It fills my soul with joy and love, Not seraphs' voices sweeter are,
That echo through the courts above. 2 Tis mercy's voice that strikes my ear,
From Calvary it sounds abroad;
S And is it true that many fiy
The sound that bids my soul rejoice,
Than turn an ear to mercy's voice? 4 With such I own, I once appeared, But now I know how great their
loss; For sweeter sounds were never heard Than mercy utters from the cross.
724 who gave himself for us that he NOW begin the heavenly theme,
might redeem . - . 1
aloud in Jesus'
Praise and bless redeeming love.
Cancelled by redeeming love. 4 Ye alas! who long have been
Willing slaves to death and sin,
Stop, and taste redeeming love. 5 Welcome all, by sin opprest,
Welcome to the Saviour's breast;
Nothing but redeeming love.
Strike aloud each tuneful string;
down from heaven. -John 6, 51. 1 BRE
READ of heaven! on Thee I feed,
For Thy flesh is meat indeed :
2 Vine of heaven! Thy blood supplies
726 Greater love hath no man than 1 IF
If tender thoughts within us burn,
To feel a friend is nigh;
The gratitude we owe
Our more than orphan's woe? 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, Thyshame,
Our worthless hearts to share! O memory, leave no other name
But His, recorded there!
C.M. 727 This do in remembrance of Me.-
Luke 22, 19. 1 1 ACCORDER I tumThy gracious word,
In meek ,
I will remember Thee.
My bread from heaven shall be; The testamental cup I take,
And thus remember Thee. 3 Gethsemane can I forget?
Or there Thy conflict see, Thine agony and bloody sweat,
And not remember Thee?
And rest on Calvary,
I must remember Thee:
5 Remember Thee, and all Thy pains
And all Thy love to me;
Will I remember Thee. 6 And when these failing lips grow dumb,
And mind and memory flee, When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come, Jesus, remember me.
728 we have redemption through His
blood.1 E bless the Saviour's name,
Our sins are all forgiven; To suffer once to earth He came,
And now He's crowned in heaven. 2 His precious blood was shed,
H body bruised for sin; Remembering this, we break the bread,
And, joyful, drink the wine. 3 While we remember Thee,
Lord, in our midst appear; Let each by faith Thy body see,
While we assemble here. 4 We never would forget
Thy rich, Thy precious love,
Our endless song above. 5 O let Thy love constrain
Our souls to cleave to Thee, And ever in our hearts remain, That word“Remember Me.
